3 Must-See New Ominimax Shows At Hong Kong Space Museum

Discover The Ocean At The Space Museum!

2021 Jul 01 - 2022 Mar 31

Hong Kong Space Museum

Science and marine life lovers can look forward to the Hong Kong Space Museum’s OMNIMAX Shows! These 40-minute shows will wow kids ages 3+ and they are educational too – score!  Audio is provided through a multi-channel headphone system that includes English. Shows admit audience members ages 3 and up. After extensive renovation, the Space Theater at the Hong Kong Space Museum reopened in July with 3 amazing new shows on offer. What better way to spend a rainy day with the family?

This is the largest-scale renovation of the Space Theater since the museum opened over 30 years ago in 1980. The most notable change to the theater is the replacement of the 23-meter-diameter dome screen that now enables crystal-clear images using the latest NanoSeam technology. The 3 new shows on offer include:

3D Dome Show “Secrets of the Universe”

This spectacular show immerses viewers on a guided journey with brilliant minds to seek answers to the greatest age-old mysteries of our time – how was the universe formed and how did it evolve into what we see around us today? Journey to the Large Hadron Collider and the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory as you flashback to history’s giants of science and look forward to all that lays ahead of us in terms of scientific discovery.

  • Show Period: 1 July 2021 to 31 March 2022

Sky Show “Worlds Beyond Earth”

This film leads viewers on a tour of the Solar System starting with a visit to the surface of Earth’s Moon following an Apollo mission with the Lunar Module “Falcon”. This show tells the story of the various worlds that share our Solar System from the swirling rings of Saturn to active volcanoes and buried oceans on distant worlds.
