What Makes Arte M an Excellent Place for Children?

Arte M, Hong Kong – Looking for Hong Kong places to visit with family may not be the easiest thing to do. So, I would like to share why Arte M is one of the museums in Hong Kong that you should add to your bucket list when traveling with kids

If you’ve been reading my blog posts, you must know we are adventurous people who love trying and checking out places. Which is why, even though not many people go to Arte M, we did.

Thankfully, it’s something we didn’t regret because our son enjoyed his time inside.

How to go to Arte M Hong Kong

The Arte M Hong Kong location can be easily found on Google Maps. Just like other famous places in Hong Kong, it’s very accessible via MTR. Just get off at Quarry Bay station and walk for a few minutes. 

You’ll see the K11 Atelier Building located at King’s Road, and when you go inside, go to the elevator to reach the 2nd floor. 

Arte M Hong Kong address: 2F, K11 HACC, K11 Atelier King’s Road

Arte M Ticket Price

Upon reaching the 2F, you’ll find the entrance to the Arte M Hong Kong art museum.

From Mondays through Fridays, the Arte M entrance fee for adults is 128 HKD (919.23 PHP or 16.36 USD), while during Saturdays, Sundays, and public holidays, you need to pay 148 HKD (1,063.02 PHP or 18.92 USD).

On the other hand, for children 4 years old and up Arte M tickets are priced at 98 HKD (703.89 PHP or 12.53 USD) for weekdays, and 108 HKD (775.61 PHP or 13.81 USD) during weekends and holidays.

However, to save some cash at Arte M, Klook has discounts offered on its website, so you can book in advance just like we did.

Arte M Opening Hours

During weekdays, Arte M opens at 11 AM and closes at 7 PM, but you can enter the art museum by 10 AM during weekends and public holidays, and leave at 7 PM

I believe the time allotted is already a lot since there’s not much attraction inside. Based on our experience, we went there on a weekday and about 1 PM and there weren’t many people around. 

We left after spending 1.5 hours inside Arte M, but you can stay longer.

Weekdays – 11 AM to 7 PM

Weekends and public holidays – 10 AM to 7 PM

Arte M Artworks

We were looking for things to do with toddlers in Hong Kong when we stumbled upon Arte M, an immersive media art exhibition space complimented by sounds and scents. Unlike Dino Park (which is a great place for kids too!), your children will not get sweaty in Arte M.

It definitely makes you get lost in the digital world, just like we did during our TeamLab Planets Tokyo visit. While the 2 museums are created by 2 different companies, they have a bit of a resemblance. 

Let’s check out the Arte M artworks we saw during our visit.

Starry Beach and Forest

There are 4 different sections inside the Hong Kong art museum. The first one you’ll see is the starry beach, where you’ll be greeted by waves of the sea throughout. Our son enjoyed this part the most.

The area is like a dark ocean night and all you’ll hear are waves splashing right in front of you. 

In one room, you’ll find the Forest, which showcases the 4 mystical spirits representing the 4 elements: water, wind, earth, and fire. 





Pink Lagoon and Underwater

Moving on to the next Arte M attraction, Pink Lagoon and Underwater comes out alternatively. 

During your Underwater explorations at Hong Kong Arte M art museum, you’ll see large egrets walking past you and around the area. Small fishes swim alongside the egrets with a relaxing sound.

After a while, the screen darkens, then becomes the Pink Lagoon where silhouettes of flamingos dance as we walk along the area. This is the part of the art museum Hong Kong artworks you don’t often see, and it certainly brings out that relaxing vibe you need.


Arte M is one of the Hong Kong tourist spots to visit because it also has an attraction like this Whale section. In this area, you’ll be amazed at how the water whale becomes in harmony with the waves. 

The huge display of waves that imitates the sea leaves a resonating emotion, unlike other 3D displays. Make sure to include Arte M as one of the things to do in Hong Kong during your visit!


Flower Cosmos greeted us when we entered the Flower area. It was the last part of our Arte M tour, but it’s an area that lets you stop for a while before you leave.

The purple flowers dancing as the wind blows reminds you to slow down, especially since we’re living in this fast-paced world. Shooting stars fall one after the other, which seemingly reminds us not to forget to have dreams. 

A few minutes after the Flower Cosmos, flowers in the field become Flower Camellia. These red flowers, also known as the flower of love, remind us to love others because of the beautiful things in this life.

Arte M Hong Kong Review Conclusion

There are so many Hong Kong places to explore but not all show us to stop and slow down. And while spending only a little time at Arte M is already enough, the experience in this Hong Kong art museum certainly is one of a kind. 

Adding Arte M to our Hong Kong family trip itinerary is a great idea because the refreshing sounds and immersive media were enough to keep our toddler busy even for just a while. And it surely is one of the best places to visit in Hong Kong if you want a variation from the usual indoor activities. 

So, if you’re looking for a child-friendly place in Hong Kong with family, consider booking a ticket at Arte M. I assure you that you’ll have a good time there!

Also consider visiting Dino Park when you’re in Hong Kong. I also wrote a review about it in the post below!
