I would rate this the best museum in Hong Kong - great displays, spacious, entertaining and educational - the Hong Kong Museum of History is one not to be missed! It took us almost half a day to skim through one floor.. can't wait to be back to check out the remaining floors! From pre-historic landscape formation to present day... More

A very good museum with many interesting exhibits.Visited on a national holiday so entrance was free, but isn't to expensive anyway. It told the full story of HK from thousands of years up to Britain's colonial rule, returned to China. All factualy told

Very interesting museum that kept me fascinating for close to 3 hours. I skipped through the first two sections (natural environment and prehistoric Hong Kong) and didn't spend too much time on the Dynasties (Han to Qing) section. However, from the folk culture, Opium Wars and the Japanese Occupation sections, this is where I was most interested and spent the... More

...with a very straight bat played on the past -- very informative, good exhibits and well set out. Definitely worth a visit for those interested in HK's past

The Hong Kong Museum was very easy to reach on foot from the Ikon Hotel where we stayed. It gives you a very comprehensive background to HK and is well worth spending 2 or 3 hours - particularly good for a rainy day

We kind of happened upon this treasure and wished we had more time to spend as we had to rush it in the end. Great displays, and an excellent account of Hong Kong history.

Hong Kong has always been known for its shopping and food. But first-time visitors should find time to visit this museum. A half-day tour is okay and there are not so many tourists especially during weekdays. It's a 10 minute walk from TST MTR station and is very close to a nearby HK Science Museum (you can actually visit both... More

A museum should not be missed! Especially the kids in Hong Kong, they know nothing about the past history of Hong Kong. ^0^
