Special Exhibition

THE HONG KONG JOCKEY CLUB PRESENTS: Becoming Jane – Inspiring a Shared Planet

Exhibition Period: 24-5-2019 (Fri) – 2-10-2019 (Wed)

Dr. Jane Goodall is a noted humanitarian, environmentalist, and has spent many years observing the behaviour of chimpanzees in their native habitat. In the past few decades, Jane has been increasingly concerned about the damage to the environment and since then she has devoted her time to campaigning and acting as an advocate for environmental charities and concerns. She has an exhaustive travelling schedule and speaks on average 300 days a year, encouraging people to do what they can to create a better world. This exhibition will be the first ever holistic presentation of the early scientific discoveries of Dr. Jane Goodall, and it will showcase her dedicated contribution in environmental conservation and youth empowerment through various interactives. With Dr. Goodall's story, we wish to empower Hong Kong youth to take constructive actions in protecting the wildlife and our environment and also live a sustainable lifestyle.

Venue: G/F Exhibition Hall, Hong Kong Science Museum

Jointly presented by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department and the Jane Goodall Institute (Hong Kong)

Winter Games

Exhibition Period: 14-6-2019 (Fri) – 16-10-2019 (Wed)

Have you ever thought of enjoying winter sports such as alpine skiing, bobsleighing, and snowball fighting in the middle of the summer? This summer, the Hong Kong Science Museum will provide you with the experience of these fascinating winter sports. You can experience being a winter sports athlete and challenge your sport skills!

The "Winter Games" exhibition features 20 interactive exhibits, including ski jumping, ice hockey, slalom and curling, allowing you to experience a variety of amazing and exciting games. Besides introducing the history, how the sports are played and their rules, the exhibition will also explain the scientific principles behind the sports that help you to master the tricks and discover the key to success. In the exhibition, you can imitate a figure skater, attempting some challenging rotations; participate in an exciting biathlon to test your skiing speed and shooting accuracy; sit on a bobsleigh and work with your teammates as you speed to the finish line; control a curling stone with a broom to move it to your desired position and knock your opponent's stone out of bounds; or learn different ice hockey shots to score in the most efficient way.

Don't miss this all-inclusive carnival of winter activities. Come and experience the fun of snow activities. Perhaps you will become a future gold medalist in the Winter Olympics!
