    It's old and has some dated areas and exhibitions, but its still a wonderful place to take children and have them explore and play around. The entry for is cheap for what you get to see. The special side exhibitions are also a great addition. Recommended trip for a family when the sun is beating down outside.

    Great space for little kids.We visited north musium only. But some device and attraction are broken. At toy shop, staff observed us all time. I couldn't understand why she did that. Was she considering that we gonna cheat staff? I wonder.

    a likeable and interesting museum but: 1) lots of descriptions not in english (esp. mechanical stuff) 2) some exhibitions are unfinished with the demonstration things not being usable 3) the restaurant is dated, food and drinj are not good quality. the Latté coffee was awful despite these, its very informative. 4 hours is not enough, more like 5-6 would be needed. fee=100$, CLOSED mondays.

    A fantastic children's science museum. Each exhibit was full of hands-on activities.
