Another museum object in Hong Kong where we can bring our children to visit beside Science Museum.
Located in the complex of Hong Kong Cultural Center in Tsim Sha Tsui, access to get there is so easy as well as it’s quite near from tourist shopping attraction such as Sogo, Harbour City, and many branded shops there.
Main attraction there are its exhibition halls and theaters. As one of learning center, ticket admission for museum here is very cheap, as follows:
– Exhibition hall: hkd 10, free for under 4yr
– Theater: hkd 24 or hkd 32, free for under 3yr
Yeaahh the admission is very cheap, but we have to come early especially for exhibition halls at the weekend as the visitors are limited per session (2hours) for good visiting experience I think. Maybe only 30-40 people per session…
Monday : 1-3 pm, 3-5 pm, 5-7 pm, 7-9 pm
Tuesday : closed (except public holiday)
Wednesday : 1-3 pm, 3-5 pm, 5-7 pm, 7-9 pm
Thursday : 1-3 pm, 3-5 pm, 5-7 pm, 7-9 pm
Friday : 1-3 pm, 3-5 pm, 5-7 pm, 7-9 pm
Saturday : 10 am – 1 pm, 1-3 pm, 3-5 pm, 5-7 pm, 7-9 pm
Sunday : 10 am – 1 pm, 1-3 pm, 3-5 pm, 5-7 pm, 7-9 pm
We bought ticket at 11.30 for session 1pm-3pm, and we came out at around 2pm, the tickets for session until 5pm was already sold out.
Most of the exhibits in the exhibition halls, the “Hall of the Cosmos” and “Hall of Space Exploration” are interactive design where the simulations or explaining devices can be tried with our children.
The “Hall of the Cosmos” on G/F showcases anything about Earth and Universe where we are living in, stars, solar system, Milky Way and galaxies, and many else.
For you who believe Big Bang theory, you can watch the theater displaying the evolution of the Universe from the Big Bang to the present era.
The “Hall of Space Exploration” on 1/F showcases anything related space exploration and space technology.
My children (3yr & 1yr) were so curious trying devices there. Trying the “Aurora” that allows us to create an aurora on an Earth model by adjusting the strength of solar wind inside a vacuum tube or driving ourselves by turning a fixed steering wheel in “Action and Reaction” so we can understand the reaction principle in rocket propulsion were so fun. But honestly, it’s very heavy to turning the steering, then after taking photo we ended it hahahaa…..
Anyway, accessories shop can be found on G/F next to the information counter and it’s not difficult to find restaurant as there are 2 restaurant in the complex of Hong Kong Cultural Center.
