Obviously this is dedicated to history of the region of Hong Kong, starting in the pre-history era when the land was formed and transitioning right up to when the Sino-British joint declaration was signed. It was a wonderful experience, and really opened my eyes. Dedicate at least three hours as it is quite large (we took that long, but we... More

Loved this museum,for a start it's cool inside! It traces Hong Kong through the ages with archaeology and natural history. For me the best area was the one with replicas of local tradition. there were old shops and streets from different periods and ceremonial processions. Expect many children if in school time but they are all so well behaved as... More

This museum is great for both adults and children. You really feel as if you walk through Hong Kong's fascinating history. Don't miss it, as it will make you understand more when you walk around the city.

This is one of the great museums in my opinion. Anyone who has had a connection with Hong Kong in the old days (like me) will find some piece of nostalgia ... sometimes bringing a tear to the eye. For those new to the place there is no better way to find out about the place.

We visited on a Wednesday when it's free (usually only $10 anyway) and it was brilliant. A full journey through the history on Hong Kong. Very hands on and a good mixture of artefacts, videos and reconstructions. Very informative at all levels from children to adults and it was great for us as first time visitors to Hong Kong to...

A really lovely museum which is well worth a visit. Fascinating history of the country covering every aspect from prehistoric to present day. Exceptionally well signposted with plenty of information. We visited on a Saturday afternoon and it was quiet and certainly not crowded. Interesting videos shown in English as well as Cantonese. Something to please everyone.
