My kids loved this! The mummy exhibition was superb and extremely engaging. We wished we had more time to spend here. Signages to get here can be improved. It's not really obvious after exiting the MTR.

Went to try the new children's gallery with two under 5yo's. Loved it. Reminded me of the Melbourne Scienceworks museum. Well maintained building site play area was a hit. Queues managed to be short even with lots of school groups on a weekday morning. Staff...More

An excellent well thought out museum. Plenty of exhibits along with airplanes etc. When we arrived there was a Star Wars display out the front of building. Although I am not sure how long it was due to remain in place.

Yes, Wednesday is free. That's a very good reason to avoid visiting on that day, as it will be even more crowded than usual.

Hi, We are looking to stay at Bophut early next year, and wondered what the options are for snorkelling nearby? Would we need to hire a boat or a car or both? Are their many different local sites? Thank you
