Quite a walk from Central station and slopey. The building is Edwardian and is quite pretty inside. It has some really nice photos and tells you all about Sun Yat Suns' life.

Came across this museum by chance and decided to pop in. It's not particularly big and is housed in an Edwardian mansion which has no connection with Dr Sun Yat Sen. However, the museum provides a detailed timeline of Dr Sun and China's history during this revolutionary period Entry fee is HKD 10 entry. Spent over an hour across the... More

This smaller museum housed in a renovated Edwardian mansion of a wealthy Chinese family in the formerly exclusive Mid Level really tells two stories. In addition as a tribute to Dr Sun, the revered leader of the 1911 revolution which ended Imperial rule in China, it also tells the story of early colonial bigotry in the city. The Chinese family...

I dropped in here on a trip to Hong Kong, having just given a lecture at Sun Yat-sen University, Guangzhou. I wanted to find out more about the man himself. They have lots of excellent photos of him in different contexts, along with varuious other exhibits, such as a timeline of events in his life. Yes, it's a pity that... More

A good place to learn about the early history of China's modern period, and the men who made it happen. Lots of info about Dr Sun Yat Sen's early years, education in Hawaii, training as a physician of western medicine, and his role in the first revolutionary military academies and campaigns. There's probably more than you'll want to know about... More

The building itself is interesting, if a little over-renovated, though it's a pity that it has no connection whatsoever with Sun Yat-sen. The exhibitions consequently feel a bit disjointed, and currently there is a special exhibition of artefacts of Sun Yat-sen's second daughter and her husband, Tai Ensai. I didn't feel that I learned a great deal about the man... More

For Chinese History enthusiasts, this museum will add to your knowledge of Sun Yat Sen's life with artifacts from his life. Two video rooms, one for kids and one for adults. Located in an interesting old mansion that had become a Latter Day Saints church for a bit. The entrance was free on the day we visited; there were guides... More

This museum is located in a nicely restored heritage building in mid-levels, it gives one some appreciation of the life and times of Sun Yat-Sen and early 20th century Hong Kong. Well worth a visit up the mid-levels escalator. And just HK$5 entrance fee !

If you have an hour or so to spare this is an interesting museum about Syn Yat Sen. Gives a good insight into his life and his influence on China. It shows how Hong Kong affected his thinking on how China should develop The building itself is impressive and worth a visit just to see the inside of it. When... More
