  • This reminds me of trips to the science museum in London with lots of interactive exhibits on themes of the environment, communication, electricity, travel etc. We spent 3 hours here and could have st...  more »

  • Located in Kowloon not far from the harbour the museum is well worth a visit to occupy a few hours. It is very good for children as most of the exhibits are interactive but at the same time interestin...  more »

  • Good for kids under 10. Some of the exhibits are dated with relation to gender roles. E.g., an exhibit helps you understand how electronic communications can help a manager who needs to a present for (his) wife, a housewife who needs to manage the household, or a student. There is an impressive 3 storey high "mousetrap" machine that runs every 2 hours from 11am. It takes 20 minutes to run the complete program, with balls going through funnels, striking chimes, up elevators - very interesting to watch. The science museum, overall, is targeted at helping kids understand how the items we use every day really work. Good for parents of kids with loads of questions about how the fridge / dehumidifier / mobile phone towers work.
  • Great place to just look around and find interesting facts about science/how things work. If you are a student, you can get free access with your Student ID card (permanent exhibits only). For the limited exhibits, you'll need to pay a very small additional fee. Definitely a good place to go if you want to read/understand random facts about science.
  • We come here mainly for local friend inform for special exhibition. The museum manage to borrow some Egypt mummies and related objects from British Museum base on new x rays technologies breakthrough can scan thru the wrapped mummies and understand further how they are wrapped in the ancient past. Meaningful insight for the fact and see it by own eye. Beside that it more I think for the kid is very young age said primary school audience.
  • A great place to bring children. Tickets are inexpensive. Use an Octopus for easy convenience. Lots to see including galleries and exhibitions such as the Energy Machine. One of the great museums of Tsim Sha Tsui. Get to Tsim Sha Tsui or East Tsim Sha Tsui and look at the Exit info to get here. Only disadvantage, too big to go through in a day! Also right next to the History Museum which is also a great place to visit.
  • Perfect space for kids! Some of the exhibits are a little dated but it doesn't matter as the substance is there (and it's impeccably maintained). Absolutely worth a visit!

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. Chain hotels sit in the northern section of the island, where luxury and budget options remain available.
