The Culture, Sports and Tourism Bureau (THB) has earlier submitted a paper to the Legislative Council proposing that the existing Science Museum should be built as a new museum to showcase the country's development and achievements, while the Science Museum would be relocated to the existing venue of the Cultural Museum in Tai Wai. LegCo member Leung Hei said that many parents had received feedback that they would not be able to bring their children to visit the Science Museum during the redevelopment period, and he quoted the Secretary for Culture, Sports and Tourism, Kevin Yeung Ke-hung, as saying that the relocation of the Science Museum would be "seamless".
In a document submitted to the Legislative Council, the Culture, Sports and Tourism Bureau proposes to set up a dedicated museum to showcase China's development and great achievements over the years in order to enhance Hong Kong people's recognition of the country and traditional Chinese culture, and to comprehensively present the history and information of the country's development to the public.
Legislator Leung Hei said that many parents had told him that they were worried that they would not be able to bring their children to visit the Science Museum during the redevelopment period. He quoted Kevin Yeung as saying that the first phase of the National Achievement Pavilion will be completed in the first phase of the vacant land in front of the Science Museum, which is expected to be completed in 2031, and at the same time, the Sha Tin Heritage Museum will be demolished and a new Science Museum will be built, so the relocation of the Science Museum will be "seamless".

The Chairman of the Legislative Council Panel on Home Affairs, Culture and Sports, Cheng Wing-shun, said that the Government hopes to expand the Science Museum to display scientific elements and attract more attention, so the existing Sha Tin Heritage Museum will be demolished and rebuilt into a new one.
