  • The price to get in isn’t expensive. There is lots to see and worth paying the little extra for the Winter Olympics Exhibition, that is great fun for both children and adults. The big energy exhibitio...  more »
  • There is cold air, children can put on the air, the home can be empty. There are a lot of fun inside, no more home. It's more fun to be a child. After visiting the science and science slot, you can also visit the historical museum on the other side. It's going to be a good one!

  • The most famous exhibit in the Hong Kong Science And Administration of Hong Kong is the DC-3 of the Thai Airways. In addition, there are many regular and irregular exhibitions, in line with children to study science knowledge.

  • Definitely an interactive museum for kids although the clock exhibition was AMAZING! How interesting can clocks get, well wait until you see the incredible masterpieces on display - encrusted with jewels and gilded with gold and platinum! There’s plenty of exhibits to interact with but would be odd as a 30 year old guy to be enjoying it when travelling solo.
  • Fun and educational, suitable for kids, teens and adults also. Plenty of hands on practical activities. The landscape map of the Silk Road exhibit is excellent. Demonstrations throughout the day explain things like how a hovercraft works or how a boat sails in a tailwind or a headwind are really educational. Only downside I think is that many things which kids are playing on could be aided by staff or parents explaining scientific principles behind it. It’s fine if you already know the science, but it seems like there is too much playing and not enough learning. Free entry on Wednesday.
  • Great place for kids to enjoy themselves especially the computer area, a stationary car in which visitors can attempt to drive in a driving simulation. One of the prominent exhibit is the 22 metre high twin tower energy machine. About 80 per cent of the exhibits are participatory so that visitors may learn through direct involvement. Its really amazing
  • A lot of interactive stuff. Kids would love it but probably won't totally understand the principles behind the exhibit until high school. But hey, rule of cool! Even for those technology inclined guys, the exhibits are still interesting, and especially so when going with friends. It's weird to say, but it's a fun place to play.
  • This is a place full of good childhood memories for most Hong Kong children. There are many fun little gadgets that children like to play with, and the top floor is especially fun. Children will love this place, regardless of age... well, unless you are planning to bring a teenager there. This is easily the most interesting museum to children in the whole of Hong Kong.
