We arrived early to the airport on day of departure just to see this. Firstly no one seemed to know what or where it was (even the customer service staff from the airport). We... read more

An overrated place. This deck does not have any seating arrangements. More that that, that place is just empty, just a rooftop. Free binoculars are useless: too dirty to see anything through. And for all of this you have to pay 15 HKD! It is not a lot of money, but it is like giving money for nothing. Don't go... More

We arrived early to the airport on day of departure just to see this. Firstly no one seemed to know what or where it was (even the customer service staff from the airport). We worked out it was in terminal 2 not terminal 1 for a start. It was free to get into but just as well as everything seemed... More

Without a doubt, the best feature of this attraction is its Sky Deck. The Deck provides a great view of the airport, the planes landing & taking off and the surrounding waterfront activity. The free binocular viewers provide remarkably close-up views. Inside the educational exhibits are highlighted by a scale collection of commercial aircraft models, built around an Airbus 380... More

As much as the exhibit provides very useful information, I find that it's too small and the fees to get up to the skydeck are too pricey. The displays are not interactive but if you are passionate about aviation, this place could be worth a visit to snap some pictures of the static miniature models. To be honest, I spent... More

I purposely spend time going all the way to the airport to look at their simulator. OMG, that thing is so poorly made comparing to the one at Flight Experience.

With juvenile setup and displays, it's a shame that it is called a museum. The location of the this 'museum' isn't exactly easy to find and it's right next to the imax theater. I find myself having more interest in seeing a movie than actually browsing through the displays. Hong Kong's museums are very sub par. Sadly.

You can visit this while waiting for your flight at the airport or just go there, especially if you'll come from Ngong Ping 360. Just take the S1 bus from the Tung Chung Station and in 15-20 mins you are at the airport. Everything is free except for the Sky Deck, 4D and the flight simulator. The flight simulator is... More
