The HK Science Museum is especially interesting for kids because it allows them to pedagogically learn science with games and activities. We also benefited from a British Museum exposition on Egypt history.

Love the live demo session suitable for family. The admission fee is reasonable and the queue is not long during weekday.

The top floor children gallery has been recently renovated. The energy machine is definitely fascinating, it only operates every two hours from 11am. Despite the museum isn't that big, we still managed to spend around two hours there as there are so much to see.

Visited the special exhibition of six mummies and hundreds of objects on loan from the British Museum. As it is summer holidays, the place is crowed with lots of kids. The exhibition offers a rare glimpse of life in Egypt some 3,000 years ago and...More

It is summertime, so there are tons of kids lined up before the place opens up. We accidentally came here as the original destination was the Museum of History, but I forgot that it was not open on the day we went. The signs here...More

You know you get in here and it looks cool. Lots of kids stuff, but that is the norm for these places. Then you get to look around a bit and you soon realize that it feels like this place is stuck in 1998. It...More

Tsim Sha Tsui
Tsim Sha Tsui is one of the major tourist and shopping
areas of Hong Kong. With a high concentration of
hotels, retail shops and commercial offices – it’s a

designer brands and jewelry, owing to its popularity

There is a snack room, but no food sold there, just a vending machine with drinks and a microwave- so my guess is you are expected to bring your own food. All the cafes are way across the street from the museum park, so... More

Yes, Wednesday is free. That's a very good reason to avoid visiting on that day, as it will be even more crowded than usual.
