This is a big really modern science museum. The show with liquid nitrogen was really good! There are lots of things to do and see. A really good place to take the children a rainy day.

Not the best but worth a visit to kill a few extra hours that you may have to spare. Plus the entrance fee is really cheap.

This science museum will definitely amaze everyone with various interesting things. You get to see how laser lights work, and you can play with few instruments to guide the laser light. You'd be amazed to see how voice is modulated with nice visual animations. You'd get to see how TV news is recorded, and you can enjoy that too! How... More

Our 4 year old loves the Science museum. For HD$20 entry fee it is well worth it. we spent a good couple of hours playing on all of the interactive exhibits. I'd say it's good for children up to about 7 or 8.

My son took 7 hours here. Many brain game at lower floor and it is takes time. Cheap ticket. We didnt found cafetaria here, so better you bring your own lunch. There are seat and table near the museum shop around ticket box area.

Free admission on Wednesday, and it was having a MARS exhibition and T-Rex exploration. The kid certainly enjoyed and having much fun as there was a lot of activities going on too. It also adjacent to 3D museum (magical world), and space museum. It is good to walk under the chilly weather.

A great place to visit with children! My child is 9 and we have spent about 3 hours on interactive activities. He enjoyed it very much. Plus he was for free👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻 Some exhibitions are outdated and needs to be renewed.

Stopped by here as my wife and I had to kill sometime. Were aware it would be guided towards children. The only real cool thing was a massive track where they drop large balls in and they move throughout the museum.

Warning : some of the exhibits are dated... it is a suitable for a rainy day activity especially free admission on Wednesdays. Younger children may enjoy it more. My children were exploring the museum while I rested my legs and checked my email.( free wifi). I noticed that the security guards kept a close watch over the safety of the... More
