Hong Kong Space Museum Resource Centre

In Hong Kong, teachers and school astronomy societies are facing a lot of problems in promoting astronomy. Not only do they lack resources or equipment, but they also have difficulties to identify suitable books and teaching aids. 

Resource Centre

In order to help alleviate such problems, the Hong Kong Space Museum has established a resource centre. It is equipped with various kinds of astronomy publications, instruments and teaching aids. The establishment of this centre will provide support to organisers for promotion of astronomy and space science.

Inside the centre users can read astronomy magazines and books in the library corner. They can also access astronomical information from the Internet, software packages or multimedia resources with the computers and audio-visual equipment. In the future, certain telescopes and teaching materials may be available for borrowing. With those supports, we hope that teachers or school astronomy societies will find organising stargazing and other astronomy activities much easier than before.  

The resource centre is open for reservation by schools or school astronomy societies. The remaining timeslot will be available for public visit with free admission. No reservation is required. However, we advise that the public should call the centre to check the availability of free timeslots before visiting. Borrowing of telescopes and teaching materials is limited to in-service teachers and school astronomy societies only. Please call 2734 2744 for the borrowing procedure.

Opening hours:
Monday to Friday: 9:00 am - 12:30 pm and 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Closed on Saturdays, Sundays and Public Holidays

Enquiry (group reservation or borrowing of teaching materials) : 2734 2744

Remarks :
1. The maximum capacity of the resource centre is 10 persons.
2. The opening hours may subject to change without prior notification.
