I haven’t posted in awhile, mostly because the internet at our last AirBnb stopped working. But that doesn’t mean we haven’t been busy. Last Saturday was wet and cold, so we decided to go to the Hong Kong Science Museum. The excitement started befire we even got there because we FINALLY got to take one of the double decker buses the kids have been dying to ride. Then we got on, and not only did we get a seat on the top, we discovered they have TVs! Our weekend was perfect before it really even started.
We started our visit at the special virtual reality dinosaur exhibit. Using tablets and augmented reality, they created a great display that the kids loved, mostly because they got to use the tablets all by themselves. Throw in a VR experience where you sit on swings and a screen that makes it look like dinosaurs are about to step on you, and you have a class act exhibit.
Feeling refuelled, we headed back into the museum for round 2. We were all pretty tired, so only lasted for another hour. All in all, we were in the museum for over 3 hours, and managed to make it through less than half of the exhibits.
