For our 5th visit to Macau we wanted to do something different. Lucky choice. Start from the top and go down saving the indoor play ground ( and McD) for the end! For all tastes and ages. Great display. Unfortunately some equipment don't work anymore...More

This should be fun for the kids. There are 14 exhibition rooms and even they may not be as interesting for the kids older than 10 but there are quite a few activities that can bring good attention to the older kids and they will...More

There is a cinema and a main exhibition area, you pay separately. This is mainly an attraction for kids, filled with interactive games (and germs) but expect 30% of them are not working, since the place is starting to age. Kids can spend 2 hours...More

It is much much better than the science center in Hong Kong. There are (if I remember correctly) 12 different "topics"/rooms to enter, ranging from space, biology, sound, sports, robotic. Very experiential with most of the exhibit being hands-on. Some of them need repair, but...More
