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

A small intimate museum in a former church which was a former residence of a tycoon before that. Some decent displays of the founding father's writings and artifacts. Not an overwhelming amount but enough for an interesting hour or so wandering through the lavish mansion. Not at all crowded and very comfortable going about at your own pace. The kids... More

The building in which the museum is housed is wonderful. A real throwback to a bygone era. The museum isn't bulging with exhibits, but there are some interesting photos and some good facts about this amazing man's life. Not worth travelling from Kowloon for, but if you are in the area - then definitely pop in.

The museum is housed in Kom Tong Hall, a restored building once owned by the Mormon Church. There are several floors, one floor dedicated to Dr. Sun Yat-Sen and his life, one floor to the history of Kom Tong Hall, and one floor to the history of Hong Kong during Dr. Sun Yat-Sen's lifetime. There were also activities for children... More

Visited the museum on Wednesday (note that free admission on Wednesday, as well as other museums located in Tsim Sha Tsui). Entrance fee is only $10 but honestly, I am glad that I made a visit on a free admission day. $10 is not much but it just doesn't worth it. Very brief story about Sun Yat Sen, as well... More
