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 You get to learn all about Dr Sun Yat Sen and the many contributions he made to a then ailing and out of date China.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... More

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

Dr Sun Yat Sen is also known as the father of modern China, his history is very interesting and the museum dedicated to this man is just as interesting. There is no photography or recording allowed within the museum itself however there are a few good photo opertunities on the exterior of the beautiful Victorian era building housing the museum....

This museum gives good background to recent Chinese history. If you weren't sure how China transitioned from being ruled by emperors to being a communist nation, this museum contains a wealth of information about the catalysts for change. There is plenty of reading, as all displays are labelled in English and Chinese, though many of the items are actually replicas.... More

Dr Sun Yat-Sen Museum is located at Castle Rd Central, Hong Kong Island. From MTR Central Station Exit (D1) one can find your way easily for the “Mid level escalators”. From here it’s about 20 mins following the signs along the way. The alternative will be ‘climbing’ slight slopes upon exiting from the MTR Sta but the museum maybe somewhat... More

The delightful displays and informative videos were so inspiring that they ignited the flame of inextinguishable passion buried deep within me. If only I were born a century earlier, Dr Sun can bet on it that I'll be in his revolutionary party. Visitors of this museum will be entitled to a wealth of information regarding this great man who History... More
