The Macao Science Centre (MSC) will be marking International Science Centre and Science Museum Day on 10 November by offering free admission.
The commemorative day is an annual event that is held internationally to draw attention to the importance and influence of science museums and related facilities.
As part of the celebration, the MSC will also organise two activities in November under the auspices of its “Starry Night” astronomy education series.
On 17 November, it will hold an “Observation of Leonids” event in Coloane, during which participants will be able to view the famous meteors through a telescope. The following day, the MSC will stage an introductory talk about the Shaw Prize for Astronomy.
The Science Centre has free admission days at various points in the year. Besides the day in November, there will be two more next month to commemorate the centre’s anniversary and the establishment of the SAR.
The MSC is open from Monday to Sunday between 10am to 6pm. It is closed on Thursdays and on Lunar New Year’s Eve, but is open on other public holidays.
