Recently, there is an exhibition in the HK science museum, showing you the process of restoring some of the antique in the Peking Palace Museum. Apart from appreciating the beauty of these treasures, this exhibition is quite informative, you'll learn something if you're interested to learn how to maintain these treasure in good condition.
The museum is in my opinion aimed mainly towards children and young adults. It has many interactive and interesting activities, big and small, that really inspire to learn more. Signage is very good both in Chinese and English. A nice thing is that they house the first aircraft flown by Cathay Pacific as well as a "machine" with balls that shows kinetic forces, quite nice to watch. That said, as it is mainly for kids and children the niose level is somewhat bothering and you probably feel that you've seen it all after two hours or so.
