This museum is next to the science museum. We only experienced the main exhibits on the first 3 floors covered by the general admission fee and we didn’t join the other optional paying attractions... more »
A great museum to visit if you have some interest in space. The collection includes a large amount of interactive displays providing information a huge range of topics from astronomy to space travel technology. The fourth floor offers an interesting ride in which you experience traveling through space in a small capsule. It also has an IMAX cinema. Overall a lovely place to visit with a wide range of activities.
Fantastic place to bring children of all ages. The museum is very well laid out and the displays are in both Chinese and English. The exhibits are very interactive and are stimulating to minds of all ages. The science behind the exhibits is also accurate and up to date. The fourth floor has a "space ride" which costs extra and stretches science a bit, but is fun for young children, not so good for people with motion sickness. This floor also has some games for kids. Overall a fantastic museum to spend all day. Especially a hot or rainy day.
