This is what a history museum should be - a mix of all-encompassing views and little details presented in a way that allows people to see it all or pick and choose details to dwell on. All for 10 HKD. And with a well-stocked museum shop plus cafeteria (which I didn't try). It's a big museum - there are galleries... More

The museum offers guided tours in English. Take the time for the tour as you will learn so much more! This is a wonderful museum that is often overlooked.

I spent a Wednesday visiting museums in Hong Kong (the day itself is important because the museums had free entry that day) and I called it the Great Museum Expedition. I visited the Flagstaff House Museum of Teaware, Hong Kong Science Museum, Hong Kong Museum of History, and the Hong Kong Space Museum. Easily one of my favorite museums in... More

I visited this museum twice. The first time to see the permanent collection about the history of Hong Kong. The second time, I visited a special temporary exhibit of Treasures from Tsarskoye Selo, Residences of the Russian Monarchs. Admission price for temporary exhibits is not included in the general admission fee for the permanent exhibition. Both of my visits were... More

It is interesting to go to this museum to see the big deco of the old HK. Mostly it won't be too crowd. I won't mind to go again.

this was a place I could have spent my entire day at. unfortunately, I reached here just about an hour before closing time and hence could not do justice to it. the museum takes us through the evolution of Hong Kong, right from the movement of tectonic plates, to the world wars, to the times today. the museum is clean...

A really impressive museum. Well worth visiting if you have any interest in history. I especially enjoyed galleries 5 to 8. I plan to return soon.
