Young space explorers and avid space fanatics are in for a treat this month as the Hong Kong Space Museum is set to reopen on April 25, 2018 following almost three years of closure.
The landmark in Tsim Sha Tsui, known for its unique egg-shaped dome, shut its exhibition halls in 2015 for an Exhibit Renewal Project.
About 70 per cent of the displays now have various interactive features, with approximately 100 new exhibits in the museum’s main exhibition halls, the Hall of the Cosmos and the Hall of Space Exploration.
According to the museum’s website, “The exhibition introduces astronomy and space science in a vivid approach.”
An exciting new feature is the ‘Disorientation in Space’ attraction where visitors can enter an upside down virtual space station and experience the weightless environment in space.
Admission to the museum is free to the public on Wednesdays.
