- Well, this is not a very exiting place for the visiting tourists. But, if you are staying in Wuhan for few days, and if you have kids, then they are definitely going to love it. Not even close to the one in Shanghai, but big enough for the kids to enjoy. It is a three stories large building. Each floor has 2 sections. Closes at 4:30 PM. So, you are suggested to enter by 2pm. There is a moderate que for the tickets, but you don't need to pay for the tickets (but need to show your passport).Written 10 July 2016This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Located right on the University grounds, this little gem of a museum has a collection of dinosaur skeletons and amazing geologic specimens. We spent an hour here and enjoyed the exhibits. It's small and would be very good for people with younger children who want to get up close. Accross the road is the petrified forest recreated for kids and adults.Written 4 April 2012This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Built on the site of Hanyang's old iron- and steel-works, this museum commemorates reforming Viceroy Zhang Zhidong at the end of the imperial period. In the late 19th century Zhang reformed industry, trade and education and was open to incorporating Western ideas.
This museum makes few concessions to non-Chinese speakers, so I was fortunate to have a translator. I still didn't understand everything, especially the long documentary film. It was a complex time in Chinese history, particularly the aftermath of the first Sino-Japanese war. But the modern museum (opened 2018) is spectacular and there are many interesting photos of Wuhan's industrial past. Much of the early machinery was imported from Europe, and Wuhan was an important point of contact with the West at the end of the 19th century.
To be honest, I don't know exactly where the museum is as we came by taxi, but I believe it is on the south bank of the Hanshui River.

- The Museum is in a beautiful place. It is situated at the bank of the Yangze River. Its a beautiful place to visit. A single time and a single day is not enough to visit here.
I visited yesterday and could visit only the 1st floor. It is full of mathematical technologies and at the end, there is 5G Exhibition. I enjoyed my whole time there. I passed around three hours and only in the 5G area. The VR, is really something to try. and believe me there is a big que. You have to be patience and wait for your turn. Feel the virtual Realistic world.
Avoid the weekends, as there is a big crowd and you have to wait in a long que in every where there.
There is also mathematical technologies on the same floor where children enjoy their time. Different mathematics techniques are there to try.
On the Second floor, there are animal life science area and the Space Science area. There are also a lots of things to watch and enjoy. Specially, the kids enjoy the areas. And also the parents could enjoy with their kids.
Overall, Its a huge area. Be careful with your groups. Be together with them all the time. There is more probability to be getting lost with your friends. and Its hard to find them again. So, hold your kid's hands and follow each other all the time. Take water, juice and dry foods with you. You get tired moving around.
Hope this review will help you. Its a most visit place. You must visit this museum when you are in Wuhan. Brochures could be found at the tourist information center for a guide. If you don't understand Chinese, contact the tourist information center desk for English brochures. It is a very helpful guide for the museum. You will not miss anything there if you have it. Enjoy your visit.Written 1 September 2019
