Hong Kong Space Museum and Museum of Art

On Tuesdays they’re both free, so why not take a look at the Space Museum and the Museum of Art. The museums are located next to each other on the harbour at Tsim Sha Tsui next to the Hong Kong Cultural Centre.

I cant quite get my head around why Hong Kong has a space museum, but anyway. It seems like a great place for local students to learn about astronomy and the history of human space travel. Its popular with kids featuring many interactive element to the displays.

Theres even a full scale version of the nose section of the US space shuttle! It also has a cinema, planetarium and many interesting, interactive and educational displays.

The Museum of Art features more than 15,000 pieces of art, including Chinese paintings and calligraphy works, historic pieces of Chinese art and work by local artists.
