The place was smaller than expected but it was still a fine place to visit if you have smaller kids, as there are interactive activities to occupy them. Worth visiting if you are out of places to visit in Hong Kong

A bit of a curate’s egg, this one! There are some exhibits which are quite interesting, but a lot which is quite mundane. Certainly not enough to keep an adult and teenager occupied beyond one hour. For younger children who want to push buttons and...More

Tsim Sha Tsui
Tsim Sha Tsui is one of the major tourist and shopping

abundant number of high-end retail stores selling
designer brands and jewelry, owing to its popularity
with high-budget shopping tours. However, it also

There is a snack room, but no food sold there, just a vending machine with drinks and a microwave- so my guess is you are expected to bring your own food. All the cafes are way across the street from the museum park, so... More

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.
