  • This place is huge. I have never been to a science mueseum that is so big. At the same time, the muesuem has many experiments or exhibits that do not function properly. Still the remaining stuff takes a lot of time to see. If you are going with kids, suggest you pick the section most suited for your kids age. The place has enough for adults if you are a science enthusiastic. All movies are in Chinese. So that was a disappointment for the kids.
  • Though it is a big museum, it is somewhat outdated and could probably use a makeover. Many of the things you can interact with had eighter a maintenance sign on them or just didn't work. All instructions and information signs are in both Chinese and English.
  • More science-tainment than actual science. Beautifully made artificial african landscape, but otherwise not very inspiring.
  • An OK museum in my view. Not highly impressive.
  • Not that impressed overall, it is mainly for children. It has some interesting things, but if you're really into science it might not go too deep into certain technologies.
