    Well...it's actually kind of boring. If you've been to any science museum in US you'll find nothing interesting here (accept maybe the retro cars and the Imax theater)

    Go and see the listening post. Oh, and the sand glasses. Also, the Google Web Lab.

    The lift to the basement is past the space exhibition. Take the accessible lift down if you want to bypass the long wait!

    Quite poor. Not so much a museum but a confusing display of random stuff of not much interest. Entrance free, but Plenty money grabbing opportunities inside. Most floors are just games. Boring.

    There was no aircon and though it says free admission , the staff upfront asked for donation before allowing us to enter. better to change the admission to ticketed than to be stopped for donation :(

    If you like retro-exhibitions, head up to the first floor communications gallery, whose labels clearly haven't been updated since the early 90s...possibly the 80s.

    Apollo 10 CSM, call sign "Charlie Brown" is on display here. After Apollo 10, NASA required "dignified" names for command and lunar modules. This "rule" lasted until Apollo 16, when "Casper" was used.

    There are over 300,000 artifacts! Check the Puffing Billy (the oldest steam locomotive) and first jet engine. Also see the IMAX 3D Cinema that shows science and nature documentaries. Read more

    Spend some time at the Listening Post, particularly if you're there for a Late. Randomly generated words in a dark room is the nearest thing I get to a religion.

    The shake bar on the 3rd floor is a welcome spot, sandwiches are pricey though.
