The place is so engaging and interactive, we spent 4+ hrs and could have easily spent another 3-4 hours. My son went crazy right from the first gallery. There are different theme galleries -...

This museum is one of hong Kong's best if you can find the time you have gotta go. It gives useful info to children through a fun and interactive display. A lot of the displays are also VERY cool.

HK science museum was a great place to go to on a rather cool rainy day. They have a bunch of interactive brainteasers, stands, rooms and exhibitions that actually explain things both in English and traditional Chinese, and then you also get to play with all that to understand the processes better. That's definitely a place I'd take my kids... More

We really enjoyed everything inside, my son was having fun and learned a lot at the same time. It was a bit crowded that day but its okay. And I'm so glad that there is no entrance fee for the kids 😘

This is a big really modern science museum. The show with liquid nitrogen was really good! There are lots of things to do and see. A really good place to take the children a rainy day.

Not the best but worth a visit to kill a few extra hours that you may have to spare. Plus the entrance fee is really cheap.
