  • We were travelling with my extended family and had flown in early in the morning so we came to keep the kids awake for the day. This was easy, lots of interactive activities. Had a great time.  more »

  • Admission here was $2.50 USD and gave many hours of entertainment - definitely not expected! I came here while waiting for my ICC light show star ferry tour to burn some time and was pleasantly surprised by how cheap it was AND how much activity there was for the price. The exhibits we're very interactive, demonstrations were fun to watch (salmon roe soda?!) and overall good vibes from the crowd. Definitely recommend if you're interested in passing some time and like interactive exhibits!
  • Geared more towards children but I still enjoyed looking around at the various interactive displays. Keep in mind that a number of the activities run on set times and I unfortunately arrived later in the day and missed them so it would pay to look them up before you go so you can schedule your trip in accordance. I think this would be a very fun and informative visit for kids and families but also has appeal for adults like me who are interested in science and how things work.
  • Well Worth a Visit This centre has a definite skew towards exhibits about energy however if you find yourself in HK and have a few hours to spare you should consider this museum. The 3-floor kinetic exhibit alone is worth the visit if you are a fan of Rube Goldberg machines. The museum also has demonstrations that are run by engaging demonstrators.
  • It was okay. It was very hard to get interested in this museum. I don't know why. The bed of nails had a weight limit of 77 kilograms. Even the largest, most prominent exhibit the 22-m (72 ft) high twin-tower¬†Energy Machine¬†which is the largest of its kind in the world was a disappointment. It had numerous paths but the balls took the same path. About 5 things impressed me, mirrors, OHSA, sound waves, children area watching them get shocked and the engines.
  • Very interesting place solely geared towards young children. The effort to set up hardy equipments handling children is really commendable. Good place to get young pre teen kids and explain them about science..

Where to stay in Hong Kong

Head to Tsim Sha Tsui for the main tourist section of Hong Kong, where it's easy to find reasonably priced accommodations to suit your particular requirements, with more expensive hotels closer to the water and side streets offering budget hostels. You can also consider Hong Kong Island, which offers easy links to the mainland via its ferry and train lines.
