Located at #2 Science Museum Road, Tsim Sha Tsui East in Kowloon, the Hong Kong Science Museum is a science-themed museum with more than 500 exhibits, most of which are interactive. The exhibits illustrate various scientific principles and the ways technology can improve everyday life.
One of Hong Kong Science Museum's most fascinating feature is the DC3 airliner which is suspended from the ceiling.
Other popular exhibits in Hong Kong Science Museum, especially for children, are the computer area, a real (but stationary) car in which visitors can attempt to drive in a driving simulation while avoiding accidents, speeding, and excessive fuel usage, and a small life-sized stationary aircraft with a video of a flight around Hong Kong playing inside the cockpit. Refreshments are available at a small cafe.
The 22-m high twin-tower Energy Machine is one of the most prominent exhibits in the museum. It is said to be the largest of its kind in the world.
The Hong Kong Science Museum consists of 18 galleries covering a wide range of science and technology topics including light, sound, motion, electricity and magnetism, mathematics, life science, geography, meteorology, computer, transportation, communication, food science, energy/energy conservation and home technology. About 80% of the exhibits are participatory so that visitors may learn through direct involvement.
The museum staff also performs daily, live demonstrations, many of which are designed for younger visitors.
