On the second floor, visitors can learn more about celestial spheres and constellations and the solar system. And telescopes, observatories the exhibits on the stars, the Milky Way and galaxies are located on the third floor. PDA guide services are also available.

Astronomical MuseumSeen and learned a lot at the Astronomical Museum. There are 4 floors of interactive displays, dioramas and plenty of practical effects to educate you on our world and its place in the cosmos.

Perfect for kidsThis was a great place for our kids - indoors for hot weather or raining. Many exhibits were hands on and had both Chinese and English information. Large enough to keep their attention and very scientific, but not too large that we felt nervous about letting them run around. We enjoyed a short “ride” which also had English translation and the kids LOVED it - I highly recommend the space ride. It was easily accessible from the MRT and short taxi ride.
Waist of timeThis place sucks really lol ,, don’t waste ur time or money find another place to go , but entrance fee was pretty cheap ,, as well the cheap stuff they have inside
Kids had a great timeOur kids had a great time. It was not too busy and the ticket prices are very reasonable. Lots of interactive exhibits to play with and the ride.
Amazing place to learn about space!My 6 years old son really having a good time walk around the space museum. Less than 2 hours time is not enough to get thru everything since there are 4 floor levels. As an adult i have a good time too. There are translation in english for every explanation. Pros: - 4 floor levels space museum - lift available within the museum - english translation available for every activities - a lot of activities thru the museum - a lot of spot for fun photography - other attractions like space simulator, 4d, imax (need to pay separately) - full air coned - pretty modern and well maintained museum - young kids with pram, wheelchair accessible Cons: - only one small gift store - no cafetaria - if you’re not interest to space this is not a good place for you
