As an important part of cultural architecture, the Science and Technology Museum bears the needs of the public for viewing exhibitions, exchanges, gatherings, entertainment and other behaviors. It is a space for children to conduct culture, science education and activities, and is an important place for children to learn, play, and rest. . The Science and Technology Museum should give full play to the unique advantages of educational resources, highlight the characteristics of science and technology, and fulfill the responsibility and mission of social education, especially children's education. This article starts with the concept of "child-friendly", through the analysis of children's psychological and behavioral characteristics, proposes the design principles of child-friendly science and technology museums in terms of traffic design, environmental capacity, and architectural design, and evaluates the Macau Science and Technology Museum.
