    Admission here was $2.50 USD and gave many hours of entertainment - definitely not expected! I came here while waiting for my ICC light show star ferry tour to burn some time and was pleasantly surprised by how cheap it was AND how much activity there was for the price. The exhibits we're very interactive, demonstrations were fun to watch (salmon roe soda?!) and overall good vibes from the crowd. Definitely recommend if you're interested in passing some time and like interactive exhibits!

    Geared more towards children but I still enjoyed looking around at the various interactive displays. Keep in mind that a number of the activities run on set times and I unfortunately arrived later in the day and missed them so it would pay to look them up before you go so you can schedule your trip in accordance. I think this would be a very fun and informative visit for kids and families but also has appeal for adults like me who are interested in science and how things work.

    It was okay. It was very hard to get interested in this museum. I don't know why. The bed of nails had a weight limit of 77 kilograms. Even the largest, most prominent exhibit the 22-m (72 ft) high twin-tower Energy Machine which is the largest of its kind in the world was a disappointment. It had numerous paths but the balls took the same path. About 5 things impressed me, mirrors, OHSA, sound waves, children area watching them get shocked and the engines.

    Very dated traditional science museum desperately in need of modernization. Everything feels like it ends in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Compared to other science museums in East Asia this is pretty disappointing. Free on Wednesdays and on the upside the museum store is quite good.

    I would give this museum 3.5 stars. We went on Wednesday when a lot of museums in Hong Kong r free. We only had time to go to the basement and 1st level. The museum had dual signs in Chinese as well as English. I loved the Hall of Mirrors, Biodiversity Gallery and Life Sciences. However, there r a lot of exhibits that were broken in the Jockey Club Environmental Conservation Gallery. The demonstration on molecular gastronomy was excellent. The women's restroom on the bottom floor was exceptionally clean. The cleaning person was using a long arm squeegee to clean the mirror. The museums's store was small, but had a good amount of toys and gadgets for kids.
