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

I had been to Hong Kong three times before I stopped by this museum by accident. A bit confusing if you don't know who Dr. Sun Yat Sen is. He's the George Washington of China, and it is worth going to this museum to better understand a more complicated story of the fall of the Qing Dynasty and the beginning... More

Take the mid-level escalator up until there is a sign pointing to the right for the Museum. The setting at the mid-level is very nice. Less crowded and has nice little shops along the road. The Museum building itself is very western and grand. The admission is HK$10. Should go in an take look. If you are not into history,... More

Really loved this beautiful oasis in the midst of the hurly burly of a busy city. Regular tours provided by very knowledgeable staff who seem really proud of the garden. You can really forget about the city outside the walls for the couple of hours you are inside. Would recommend for everyone interested in gardens and for those needing to... More

Great building in lovely part of HK. But a bit random! Definitely value for money at only $10HK to enter, but in my mind the museum raised more questions about the founding of modern China than it answered. Was interesting seeing some pictures of old Hong Kong though.

I went here one rainy afternoon and found it a lot more interesting than I thought it would be. You get to learn all about Dr Sun Yat Sen and the many contributions he made to a then ailing and out of date China. He is called 'the father of modern China' for good reason. Did you know he was...

You get two for the price of one with this visit - the museum is located in the Kom Tong Hall - the early 20 Century residence of a very influential Chinese family. The building and its finishings incorporate features of traditional Chinese architecture with a strong overlay of European (particularly French) design and decoration. The Sun Yat Sen museum...

Located in the mid level, you can easily follow the sign along the mid level escalator up to Soho. It was very hot in Hongkong summer and I guess I would have a visit for cooling my body inside the museum. It is a 3 storeys French style building with a statue of Dr. Sun Yat Sen just before the...

I combined this with a visit to the Museum of Medical Sciences as close by. This lovely looking building is packed full of information and if you read everything you will be there for hours. I particularly liked the video of Dr Sun Yat Sen's life, also the video of the history of the building. A short walk from the... More

This museum deserves more attention than it appears to be getting here on Trip Advisor! It does a thorough job of introducing the Father of Modern China to the casual visitor, and of preserving his heritage for the history buff. The displays (in English and Chinese) insure that you come away with a better sense of the man and the... More
