About CDM

The Hong Kong Children’s Discovery Museum (CDM) is a recognized tax-exempt charitable institution in Hong Kong, under Section 88 of the Inland Revenue Ordinance.

CDM opened mid-September 2018 as a venue for families and school groups to explore, create, and express themselves together. It showcases how much can be learned through play and aims to foster a love of learning beyond the classroom. CDM is the first of its kind in Hong Kong and its exhibits uniquely reflect the city’s people and culture.

The museum welcomes all Hong Kong communities to engage with interactive educational exhibits, which are designed for children 10 years old and under. Family members from ages 0 to 100 are encouraged to join in the play.
