Hong Kong Science Museum - A Must See!
You want to know where to go in Hong Kong - that high tech city, with high tech facilities and high tech things around. Naturally, you gotta go to a high tech museum. hehehe
But kidding aside, one should not miss the Hong Kong Science Museum as it is something for old and young people. It is full of exhibits most of which are interactive and unlike the ones normally seen in a science museum. It covers paleontology, anatomy, physics, chemistry, electromagnetism, computers, telecommunications, solar energy, etc. What I liked the most there was the TV studio where they created a real life studio (a small one of course) and the visitor is able to make a TV show where he operates the buttons behind the scene and another visitor acts as the newsman. There's a TV where the show is broadcasted and the effects we see such as rainfall or snow are shown.
The science museum is right in front of the museum of history. The entrance fee is 25 HKD per person but it is free on wednesdays.
