    Located within K11 Musea and it wasn't too difficult to find. Although there are 10 Lego themed play areas, the place is rather small and it can get crowded. Fortunately I went with my 4 year-old on a weekend and there weren't too many people.
    The Miniland features replica of Hong Kong's iconic landmarks and buildings which was fascinating and I've spent 20 minutes there with my boy.
    Kingdom Quest was a quick and fun ride which my son enjoyed it very much.
    Lego Racer was another area where we've spent most of our time building and racing with other kids.
    Overall it was an amazing experience for my boy and it's a great place to spend 3 to 4 hours. Only downside was the food... can't believe they serve those frozen microwavable food and charged so much.

    I took my 5 year old daughter here on a rainy Sunday and we had a ball.

    The term 'museum' doesn't really capture what it offers. It is a hands-on, experiential place that covers environmental awareness, storytelling and scientific experimentation that was perfectly pitched for a 5 year old. I think it would appeal to older kids too.

    It only opened 6 months ago and is in great shape. Everything is very clean and well thought out. There are plenty of staff on hand who all had great English and were extremely friendly. It feels extremely free and easy for kids to explore, there was almost no 'cannot' to be heard, which was a relief.

    There is a wide variety of activities including interactive storytelling, a small wind tunnel where you can take your recycled good vehicles for a test flight (fun!), an amazing sandpit that (almost magically) creates contour lines on the sand to show when you create mountains and oceans (you really have to see it to get the full brilliance of it -I'm doing it no justice here), a window to paint on (see photo), a large magnetic marble run, an activity to draw attention to how many miles food travels to get to HK, a large video microscope with a massive selection of things to study and a banyan tree rope bridge to explore.

    There are some excellent quality picture books distributed all over the place and a sweet little corner to read them in.

    You can book in advance for a 2.5 hour session. It is extremely reasonably priced and the time flew by.

    They plan to change the theme of the main 'experiment' room every 2-3 months and they are very open to groups of children from schools, other organisations.

    I will go again, no question, and will be sure to take my daughter's friends along next time.

    This is a speciality museum located along Bridges Street in Sheung Wan. It is situated within the Grade III historic building (2011) market building which has an interesting bit of history of its own. The News Expo is open from 10am to 7pm daily (closed on Mondays) and is free to visit.

    Historically, this was the original location of the Preaching House of the American Congregational Church in the late 19th century. It is where Dr. Sun Yat-Sen was baptised in 1883. After WWII, the Bridges Street Market building was constructed here. It was Bauhaus in architectural style and was one of the first public markets built in the post-war era. After six decades of serving the community, the market was closed. In 2018, after being renovated as part of an Urban Renewal Authority project, it was reopened as the Hong Kong News Expo.

    What you find today is a ground floor exhibition gallery which provides glimpse into how news was created, distributed and how different media shaped how those in Hong Kong received news, both local and international, since the 19th century.

    There are sections that focus on newspapers, which might be the most interesting as it dates back further into the Qing Dynasty. You will also learn about radio, television and internet and learn how these later media forms evolved, became mainstream and how they exist today in Hong Kong through various lenses and highlighting major events that have taken place throughout Hong Kong's 20th century.

    Overall, it is a good speciality museum if this is a topic of interest. The displays are expectedly texty with lots of information being shared. You can leisurely view everything in around 45 minutes or browse through the areas of interest only in around 15-20 minutes. This attraction is formally part of the Sheung Wan Heritage Trail (Route A - stop #17) for those taking in that self-walk trail.

    The Metropolis Museum is a private art museum featuring classical art. The gallery is spacious and comfortable, a good place for family. They also offer art workshops for kids, yet registration is required.
