....but be prepared to spend a large part of the day in there - plenty to see. The layout is rather peculiar at times but there was a huge variety of things to see. Very cheap entry fee also
Worth seeing if only for this exhibition giving all the history of HK from rock formation, native peoples, cultural and social life etc. Free on Weds otherwise costs very reasonable. I rented the audio guide for $10 so cheap.
The museum takes you thru the formation of Hong Kong (geologically) and then the various stages of the country's development. Walking thru the geological section it all seemed a little 'false' and not too promising. But then moved thru to the section about the peoples and their ways of life - and there were full size fishing boats and example... More
There are many museums around Hong Kong and this one is really not to be missed, I though a couple of hours would suffice but exited after about 4 hours. The displays take you from pre-history Hong Kong through the colonial days and the Japanese occupation finally to the hand over in 1997.
Very interesting exibition! Must see the visual materials in museum, especially in the begining. Good space organization
The weather was rainy and cold so visited the Museum of History. Discovered you should visit even if the weather is fine. A great morning out. Huge tableaus covering all aspects of Hong Kong from Pre Historic through to the present day.
Large airy modern museum. Plenty of large scale models and information in English. Comprehensive coverage of Hong Kong history. Temporary exhibition of vintage photographs was excellent and gave a different insight into Hong Kongs' development. Spent several hours there but could easily have spent longer.
A must visit if you have never been there before. Highly recommended for the tourist who is there for the first time. It is verbwell to naviget. The information is factual and not so polo Iticlly biased one way or anther. It help to enrich your trip to this anmazingn city and understand its people and their soul.
Saw the current exhibition, photos of old hong kong. It was really interesting to see in pictures just how much the place has changed. The Hong kong story is also worth spending time at.
