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

The museum offers a lot of interesting hands on experiments, by which you can repeat the knowledge of natural sciences.

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
