Shenzhen Children's Palace
Shenzhen Children's Palace is a huge activity center for children aged about 5-12 in Shenzhen. In fact, although you can enter without kids, you do need to bring kids to go to the activity areas. We saw little girls in dancing outfits, karate suits, a big queue for Energy's world, but also serious stuff like robotics etc. The building has a very futuristic design and is located just to the north of the Civic Center and to the east of the Book City.

Admission Fee:

free to enter, but most classes and activities are not free. I'm not sure about the entrance fee for the themed halls. Robotics class was about 1280Y for 27 classes if I remember correctly.
