GUANGZHOU: China has unveiled the world’s largest science and technology museum in the southern city of Guangzhou that will demonstrate the country’s newest achievements in the field.
The Guangdong Science Centre, with an area of 450,000 square meters, is situated at the far western tip of Xiaoguwei Island, also the location of Guangzhou University Town in the Guangdong province.
With a floor area larger than Beijing’s Tian’anmen Square, the steel-structured main building of the museum features a blooming kapok flower.
To be officially opened to the public Sep 27, the science centre offers eight exhibition areas, four science cinema halls, two open laboratories and a digital “family experience” hall. Outside the main building, there is an 80,000-square-metre artificial lake for water-theme exhibitions and an outdoor science square.
Visitors to the interactive science centre can experience simulated earthquake and typhoon environments, a satellite launch process, and play with a robot. The centre will display newest achievements on science and technology.
