We ended up visiting twice and entered for free on both occasions. My son (6 year old) begged me to go back a second time. It is very educational and there are a lot of fun things to do for parents too. You need to allow for 2-3 hours for the visit.

An excellent place to take the kids with so many things for them to press and touch. The electricity and magnets set the bar but the whole 3 floors had numerous things for the kids to do. The favourite for the youngsters was the Lego - which was ably managed by a museum staff member to ensure that no one... More

It seemed they allowed way more people inside than what the place can ideally fit, with hoards of families from the mainland. Many of the exhibits were dated and gimmicky. Would only recommend this to give the kids some fun.

If you are a budding scientist or an enthusiast this place is a great place to visit with your child/ren. There are many interactive activities and you could spend a whole day there!

This museum is adjacent to the Hong Kong Museum of History which we planned to visit next time we are in Hong Kong. Our daughter enjoyed the museum very much and learnt a lot during the one day visit we had. The exhibits are mostly children friendly and there are many interactive exhibits which is fun and educational for adults... More

My 7-year old kid loved most of the exhibit, from the hourly giant Energy Machine demo, to Basement's Life-Science exhibit and Children Area, 1F Electricity exhibit, and 2F Communication exhibit. These hands-on exhibit makes learning fun! We spent about 3 hours inside.

Quite frankly, I can't comment on this museum, because I was never allowed in for the simple reason that I did not have change. The person didn't bother to check if she had change and shouted out over the microphone that I can't be let in because I didn't have the correct amount in change, which was embarrassing.

The HK museums are larger than we could imagine. It takes approximately half of the day to see and enjoy a museum. And especially, this museum of science covers almost everything related to science. I was skeptical about this science museum and hence allotted lesser time in my plan. I wish I could have spent some more time here. Keeping... More
