Took our toddler here and didn't really find it suitable for a 2 year old, would have been better if he had been older. Also, I was given a pass in English to use all the games but it didn't work but my husband's Chinese one worked. So pretty useless for me and all my son was bothered about was pressing buttons.

Its a very interactive, modern and english friendly place. The building is not big, but the exhibits are fun, interactive, and explorable. My 12, 10, 8 and 6 had a great time here. This is one of 2 places in beijing where we spend hours exploring and they didnt complain a word. They love it.

I went with a group of Children and they loved it. Children around Kindergarten age would enjoy it most.

This is a great hands-on museum for kids. For a very afforable price of only 60 RMB for one adult and two kids, we had two solid hours of entertainment and even some learning! Upon entering the museum guests receive a badge that they then use to activate the different exhibits. English speakers get a badge that shows the information in English, which was nice, although there were a few exhibits where it still showed us only Chinese. Exhibits were very interactive and hands on, much to the delight of the kids (aged 6-10) we were traveling with. Younger children, say under 4, might struggle with not being tall enough or big enough to reach some of the exhibits, however. Some favorites were making an animated character of yourself, making a movie using green screen technology, the many exhibits which played on the way your eyes can play tricks on your mind, and a fun exhibit that showed how just a very few moving dots can make a coherent picture to our amazing brains. There were Western toilets in at least one of the bathrooms. There was a small cafe but I didn't get a chance to see what was available. And best of all, admission to Chaoyang Park is included so if you still have energy you can explore other attractions in the park or stroll its shady paths.

Visited with my daughter who is 8 yo. It was our first visit to Chaoyng park area. Sony explora has a separate ticket window at the south gate of the park. We we told that if we buy the ticket to Sony place, there is no need to buy a separate park entrance ticket which costs 5 yuan. Unfortunately the Sony explora counter was not attended by anyone though seemed open. After waiting for about 10 min We ended up purchasing the park ticket and then purchased Sony ticket at their thicken counter. Overall, my daughter enjoyed hands-on experience though not all items were functioning. Worth a trip and good way to introduce concepts of light and refraction.
