Wow. I had such high hopes for this place when I took my children and wife. My kids were so disappointed, First-
Building is awesome architecture and display of over the top waste. Awesome, and i could not stop thinking of what possibly great things it could be used for than other than what we saw.
I dont want to harp on the quality of Science education or innovation in the Chinese classroom.... But the whole exhibit had a terribly run down dim chuckey cheese/broken disneyland abandoned themepark feeling to it.
I sweat to god it was like watching adhd extravaganza on crack. Every one running and touching and turning the shiney blinky feel good things and not one person even cared to read or think or know anything of what might or might not be written on the walls.
And I am so happy there was not anything about the ISS.
So anyhow, maybe I have been spoiled by just visiting my lame science fairs growing up as a kid... not to mention and other worldly meuseums...
But i left that places mostly remembering the monstrously awesome architecture, and replicated terracotta warrior like displays of pandas in the front of the building..
And also that some people spent and made huge amounts of money on the design and consturction... What is it there for? Completely under utilized.
If you have any respect for your children, do not let them ever ever go to that museum.
Instead have them stay home and check out the cool stuff online:
That place was so bad. I am so sorry to my children. what a let down. We really wanted to have a good time at the museum.
