Manned spaceflight, known for its complexity, has always been considered the most demanding pursuit in space engineering. China Manned Space Program, which commenced in 1992, has now matured over a span of thirty years. During this time, the programme has achieved remarkable breakthroughs and successfully mastered a series of crucial technologies. It has established its own manned spacecraft system, completed multiple successful flight missions, and acquired expertise in areas such as rendezvous and docking, as well as extravehicular activities. Finally, in late 2022, the construction of the Tiangong Space Station was completed, symbolising the realisation of the goals outlined in the "three-step" development strategy, transitioning towards utilisation and further advancement stages.

The exhibition area centres around the history of China's manned space development, providing visitors with an insightful look into the extraordinary thirty-year journey towards the goal, and showcases exhibits including training spacesuit of the first astronaut of the country, Yang Liwei, and the flag of HKSAR which had been brought to space by spacecraft Shenzhou I. It not only demonstrates the fruitful results of the manned spaceflight project, but also hopes to inspiring the younger generation's interest in space science and technology and contributing to the national aerospace industry.
