If the weather lets you down then a visit here is great - enough to keep kids of all ages entertained and really great value for money.

Good on "Free Wednesdays", although busy with school children. Probably better for junior school ages, as some of the science is more technical. Hall of mirrors is good fun. Worth a couple of hours.

I went by myself as an adult, and this wasn't so much fun. Compared to the Exploratorium in SF, or the Science Museum in London, or Questacon in Canberra, which are all family-friendly, the HK museum seemed more exclusively for kids. I enjoyed the giant...More

Great for children and adults... (but mainly children). Lots of interesting fact boards, very helpful staff on had to explain things and tell stories about the artefacts. A good place to visit when the weather is bad.

Definitely not on the same standard as the Vancouver Science museum but worth a visit if you have time in HK. It could do with some updating and more hands on activities. There are very poor eating and drinking facilities on offer and not much...More

An interesting attraction, with a great variety of exhibits. Many hands-on attractions. Those of school age will greatly benefit from a visit, which shiould be planned fioer at least half a day. It is co-located with an excellent IMAX.

We were travelling with my extended family and had flown in early in the morning so we came to keep the kids awake for the day. This was easy, lots of interactive activities. Had a great time.

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.
