Went there with my girlfriend and friends, it was ok. The only good reason to go is with a kid, there are tons of kids attractions. If you don't have a kid, no reason to go.

So, the mistake was ours. That is, we failed to acknowledge that it was school holiday time before visiting the Macao Science Centre. If boisterous kids pushing in front of you and commandeering every exhibit is your thing, then you are going to love MSC...More

It looked like a playground for children. Everything was broken or not working at all. None of the activities was properly explained. It is such a shame for a place like Macau to have such an amazing building but with such a poor scientific content.
