11/10/2010 Hong Kong Space Museum 香港太空館

In Hong Kong, there are many different theme of Museums such as Hong Kong Museum of History and Hong Kong Museum of Coastal Defence. These kind of Museums are also define as Hong Kong attractions. Today we visit one of the most popular Museums - Hong Kong Space Museum. The most attractive point is it's outlook. The unique egg-shaped dome renders the 8000-square-metre museum to be one of the most famous landmarks in Hong Kong.

Inside the Museum, you can see different parts. The planetarium's nucleus, has an egg-shaped dome structure is the Stanley Ho Space Theatre. Some Omnimax Shows, Sky Shows perform there though the huge screen. This Omnimax Shows of this period are IMAX Under the Sea and Grand Canyon Adventure. We finally bought tickets and watched IMAX Under the Sea. It was really exciting! The huge screen made you felt that you actually under the water and closely to animals under the sea. Some of them we hadn't seen before but they are alive under deep water. It was a excellent fictitious journey to me.

Also, we visited the thematic exhibition halls - The Hall of Space Science. This is a really good attraction for people who like Science subject. In the hall, you can see many display boards of knowledge about Science and Space. The message not only deliver by board but also though interactive machines like games in computor. Some of them you can try by yourself actually. It is a nice experience for me to gain knowledge though this channel.

At the lobby, there are some exhibition boards introducing Omnimax Shows and Sky Shows. You can get more details of the show from the board. At the side of the lobby, a small sourvernir shop overthere. The related sourvernir inculding geographical globe, dinosaurs puzzle etc..
