Hong Kong Space Museum

Entertainment and Education at the Hong Kong Space Museum

The Hong Kong Space Museum, opened in 1980, is the first planetarium opened in the city, and is one of the most famous Hong Kong landmarks – the building has a unique egg shape that is impossible to miss.

The museum has two wings, the east and the west. In the east, you will find the Hall of Space Science and the Space Theater, while in the west, you will find the Hall of Astronomy, the Lecture Hall, and the gift shop.

The Hall of Space Science

In the Hall of Space Science, you will find a variety of different exhibits. Most of the sections have videos that you can watch to get a better understanding of the science and history involved. The following is a sampling of the exhibits that you can see in this section.

The Ancient Astronomical History Section

Here you will find a full sized replica of Stonehenge, just like the one that is located in the south of England. You can view the stars as the ancients did.

Science Fiction

The Science Fiction section shows just how science fiction and real space travel developed side by side. You can learn about different aspects of science fiction, as well as see how alien life might develop on a planet that is very different from earth.

Early Rockets

See samples of some of the earliest rockets developed by humankind, see how they advanced and finally were able to escape earth's gravity and reach the stars.

Launch Vehicles

Here you can sit in an actual gyroscopic chair and see just what is takes to stabilize. You can also simulate the launch of a rocket in slow motion.

Satellites and Space Probes

Visitors can learn about the science behind satellite and space probe technology in this section. They can even get the chance to manipulate a robotic arm like the ones used on a variety of space vehicles

The Hall of Astronomy also features a number of interesting exhibits, including telescopes and a huge model of the solar system. Anyone interested in astronomy will have a great time here.

In addition to the above exhibits, you can find a host of other things at the museum. Step aboard a section of a space station, or see what the inside of a space shuttle looks like. This museum is full of interesting items that are sure to bring out the astronaut in everyone.
