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

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...
