Closed until 2017-09

We went there, but they are closed for renovation until 2017-09. It's a large museum from the outside and should be interesting. Rated three stars because we didn't go there.

This may be a very nice and rich museum, but it is currently closed for renovations, but you won't be able find out about it until you drag yourself to the entrance. What a waste of time! At least Chairman Mao waves at you in front of the building.

You've gotta love this weird blast from the past. A 1960s nationalistic science display. The fact it is tired, out of date and highly politicised does not detract from its fascination - only adds to it. The sleeping guards everywhere, the fact that most of the displays don't work. The whole place is a relic from another era, and not... More

What can I say, its free. Most of the exhibits were broken, and the ones that were working were of fairly poor quality. Half of the lights were turned off and there was not much staff around. It seems as if this museum has been forgotten and left to rot.

Interactive displays good for children. Unfortunately lots of the interactive parts of most of those displays were not working. Might be a good place to take children. Free!

I loved this museum and it was also free. There are lots of interesting exhibitions and it is a real insight into Chinese contribution to science - and I liked how there were lots of varied sections. I also loved the robot that was playing a tradition Chinese instrument.

When I was about to visit this museum I had great expectation since China is very much advanced country in the field of Science and Technology. Unfortunately the museum had very less to offer. The museum is quite big and covers most of the science and tech fields, however the lacks in quality of scientific models or demos. There are... More

I didn't expect much before I went there. I had Ontario Science Center for many years and went to a lot of science centres in North America. This science center is dated but still good for young kids. There are 5 floors and I was amazed by all the music robots. Very cool to see them play music instrument.

Came here on a cold and smoggy day with my family. Easy to get to as it is located right behind the Mao Statue. It is FREE to get in, but you still have to line up to get a ticket. There are five floors. On each floor there are interactive displays where you push a button and something cool... More

We visited here in Spring 2014. Went here during a regular workday with another expat family, the place was nearly empty. The science exhibits haven't been updated since probably 1985 and many of them didn't even work. Still, our children (ages 9,7,5,3,1 at the time) found it enjoyable enough. I would not recommend this as something to do on your... More
