This is a fine medium sized museum, a short walk from the waterfront promenade. We were glad we went and learned many interesting things about Hong Kong in WWIi, the rebuilding of a high rise Hong Kong, as well as earlier history and folk culture. It is well worth watching the video presentations. There are also hsnds on activities for... More

very easy to reach this place by bus also. The architecture is very interesting. This museum does a great job covering the very early beginnings of Hong Kong thru present day. Well worth a look round with some beautiful displays.

I visited Museum of History on a nice sunny day in Hong Kong ! Well, I had a spledid time there. I had read in a TripAdvisor review, that if you want to know Hong Kong, you need to underestand Hong Kong first ! And the best way to "know" & "understand" this beautiful place is by visiting this museum... More

Great content for those interested in History. The stories, exhibits, descriptions are world class. It may not be the Chicago History Museum but it surely is very very good !! The entry fare is so resonable @10HKD. Loved the experience overall.

Great way to take in the history of Hong Kong on a rainy day. Some interesting perspectives and introduction to the ancient and modern history of China and Hong Kong. Great for kids to explore and run around too - not at all stuffy.

I managed to leave the familly shopping and visited the Hong Kong Museum on my own. I was in a rush and only had an hour or so, which didn't do it justice. However, the whole layout and exhibits are second to none. they have gone to extraordinary lengths to make the exhibits interesting to children and adults alike. Strongly... More

The ticket price is HKD 7 but it is still not worth it. Not even worth the time. The closest MTR is Tsim Sha Sui and its a 15 minutes walk to the museum. The museum doesn't say any entertaining things about HK. I love visiting museums. But this one was a bore.

From a full size Junk to a walk through old fashioned street with a good overview of village life the museum has a lot to offer. There are several AV presentations as well. Kept 2 six year olds and 2 three year olds interested for 3 hours. Didn't see it all so will be back. Well maintained and good information... More

Very interesting museum. Got there 2 hours before closing but ran out of time for the latter part of the exhibit. Spent too much time at the beginning sections 1-4. Almost missed the fact that you had to go up 2 sets of escalators to the second half of the exhibit - which featured the more recent history of Hong... More

This museum can be a good respite from the hustle and bustle of the TsimShaTsui area that surrounds it, and it has some very interesting exhibits too. Hong Kong history would not be vast compared to many other civilisations, but it surely is fascinating, and the museum does a great job in bringing the visitor from jurassic times right up... More
