Is the Hong Kong Space Museum Worth Visiting?

Of all the stops we made in Hong Kong, we were really only let down by the Hong Kong Space Museum.

The museum is locate at 10 Nathan Avenue right on the harbor in Kowloon.  It is fairly small as space museums go.  The exhibits were mostly of demonstrations of the principles of space flight.  I was kind of let down.  There were quite a few hands on demonstrations for kids, a low gravity walker and space walk simulator for example, but not a lot to hold the attention of space buffs or adults.  

The one unexpected and cool display was a full scale mock up of the bridge of a US space shuttle.  Unless I had children or was into Imax, I would give the Hong Kong Space Museum a pass.
