This well-kept place is a nice diversion, but shouldn't be a destination. The actual tomb is empty: you can peek in and see some ornamental bricks, but that's about it. The museum has some old relics (pieces of pottery, a small clay house) from this and other sites, laid out in a rather bland row. Adorning the walls are larger... More

Hong Kong isn't exactly known for breathtaking historical finds but considering what little they had, they have done an excellent job of making this more interesting than it really is. It is free and there is a nice garden next door. While it certainly is not a must-see for those short on time, it makes a nice diversion.

The museum is relatively small and would take about 20 minutes to walk through. We took the subway and walked a few blocks to get to. My local friend hasn't been there so it was a nice trek to check out some history in Hong Kong. Nothing too fascinating about this tomb though the museum is decent. Free admission to... More

The Tomb is a relic of the Han Dynasty and constructed AD 25-220. The attraction is significant but not well known. It is a worthwhile investment in time particularly for those who wish to see history and understand and view the Chinese old ways and the beginning of housing estates in Hong Kong. One needs to get to the Cheung... More

We walked about 10-15mins from the station to this place passing the Hans garden. It was really amazing as to how they built this place with the bricks and able to build something curve.... Very amazing. It was quite small but an interesting to take about an hour to see.

The Lei Cheng Uk Han Tomb and Museum (free) is a little known attraction just 5 minutes walk from the Cheung Sha Wan MTR in the Sham Shui Po area of Hong Kong. Here you can learn about the discovery of the Han Dynasty tomb (AD 25-220) in 1955 when the area hillside was being levelled for residential construction, take... More

This is a nice, but small Han dynasty tomb. The museum is nice as it has all the relics of what was found inside the tomb. Also. there are history exhibits of other tombs found in China. here is the one sad part=you can't walk in the tomb, but only look into it from behind as glass door. Still, it's... More
