Half the exits are broken or not working. Manly for kids. Gift shop is not very good. Staff were helpful.

Excellent place for kiddos, lots of hands on experience and well laid out. Fun yet a great learning opportunity. The place is set up into different genres of science with all the basics taught in a fun environment. Well worth the visit, transport to and from the Science Center can be a bit of a hassle, may have to wait for taxi for 15 - 20 minutes due to lack of taxi. Not much food options there, just a McDonald's and a cafe.

The whole place seems to be under refurbishment so is covered in scaffolding. We visited the planetarium which was very good, but the rest of the museum was a bit underwhelming. There were very few visitors so that may have been a factor, in fact we were the only people in the planetarium for the showing.

If you're not a child or a child at heart, this place is not for you. I visited this place on the pretense that it catered both to adults and children alike with its offerings of Aurora 3D Light Shows and other attractions that seem to appeal to at least the teen demographic. But we were greeted with more or less a kiddie playhouse filled with educational exhibits.

Good place to spend the day. Not only children would enjoy it, but my gf and I also had a great time. There were loads of interactive games which is not only fun but educational.

You can't help but be impressed with your visit to the Macau Science Centre which includes the five floor exhibition center (MOP50) area as well a planetarium which features 2D (MOP50) and 3D (MOP65) programs throughout the day. This is a great place for families, especially younger children, to spend time in Macau. There is much to experience (and try) at the Science Center, a place you can easily find yourself entertained for several hours. What to see in the Exhibition Center: The exhibition area is a Five floor, spiral-shaped building with 14 different exhibition rooms, each filled with modern, interactive and entertaining exhibits capable of entertaining children and adults alike. We particularly enjoyed the Space Science Room (ground floor), the Children's Science Gallery (first floor) which both offered lots of hands on exhibits. We also liked the Meteorology Gallery (second floor) and Robotic Gallery (second floor). The Robotic Gallery was particularly impressive with some highly advanced exhibits for visitors to try. Loved the rubix cube robot and the robot that danced for you. The Sports Health and Sports Challenge Galleries (third floor) included fun measuring devices - for hand strength, eye hand coordination, body balancing abilities and other physically challenging exercise and game exhibits. There was even a small basketball court found here. These were the top rooms in our view but all rooms were enjoyable to enter and visit. There are also two special exhibitions at the Science Center at present. On the ground floor there is an exhibition area highlighting Macau's urbanization, land reclamation and land expansion plans. Then on the first floor there is an exhibit featuring Macau's future LRT system which is presently in development and scheduled to become available in 2015. These are worth a peek for those interested in what Macau looks like today and what it might be like in the future. Unfortunately, we didn't have time to visit the planetarium but the programs looked promising, child-friendly and entertaining, something worth trying in addition to visiting the excellent exhibition area. How to enter the museum: There are two entrances you can choose from. First, there is the normal ground level entrance, from which you can work your way up the five floors of the exhibition center before reaching a nice viewing platform near the top. Here you can see the Macau Skyline before returning to the exhibition area, using the lift to return to the ground level to exit the exhibition center area. Alternatively, from the ground floor you can go through a little cafe and take a long escalator immediately to the 5th floor viewing platform for the look at the Skyline. From there you can enter the exhibition area and simply work your way through the exhibition galleries in reverse. This is a good idea if you want to see the city views first. Hint: There are free self-service locker facilities for visitors that can be found past the McDonalds next to a small children's playground area on the ground level. Hint: Inside the Macau Science Center there is a McDonalds, a Cafe Corner (coffee and snacks) and even a small yoghurt shop for those who want a budget friendly meal while on site. Overall, this is by far the best child and family friendly form of entertainment on offer in Macau. Even as curious adults, we quite enjoyed much of what we found at the Macau Science Museum. This is a modern, innovative and creatively designed attraction that the city of Macau should be proud of. It is well worth visiting when in Macau.

A great science museum with a very reasonable price. There is also a McDonald's there which is very convenient. There are also shuttle buses at certain times to take you to the ferry pier nearby. There are about 15 showrooms and each has different topics. Some are about trains, space, DNA and much much more. A great place to take your kids to and have a day of fun.

Quite large with a lot of zones to explore different activities. We went an hour before closing time, so not too many people there, but I can imagine peak hours. This was a great part of a cultural day in Macau and worth the price of admission.

An award winning science center. There are 14 rooms publicing different basic scientific theories, sure you can gain some knowledge here. Very reasonable entrance ticket price, separate ticket for 3D animation and kids zone. There is a McDonald in the center, so you can spend one day slowly read, understand and relex with your children here. Shutter bus service available from certain destination.
