We came to the science museum as we had a few hours to kill with our children. We had an awesome time. It is really interactive and interesting for both teenage kids and adults. FT students are free

One of my favourite museums in the city and I always have to visit when I come to HK. Free entry to permanent exhibits on Wednesdays. Great exhibits on display and many are interactive. Super informative and in both English and Chinese.

Want something different to do or have extra time in HK? Pay the museum a visit - you will not regret, lots of different zones, games activities and things to see. Kids will definitely love. My 4 year old had a blast!

The Science museum was a bit of fun that broke up the holiday for the kids. Plenty of interactive exhibits probably more suited to the younger ones.

Yes, Wednesday is free. That's a very good reason to avoid visiting on that day, as it will be even more crowded than usual.
