Very informative

Learnt a lot from the visit. Many of the Hakka younger generation are clueless about their heritage and this place will truly be a great source of knowledge for them.

I love museums. Among many types of museum, history is probably the most touching one... and if it's the history about you, then it's a must to visit. This museum is a huge one. Detailed in telling stories but also enriching your insights if you questions 5W1H about the Hakka and China.

If you wish to learn about the history and culture of Hakka people in China that is the place to start. Located in the city and easy access by bus or taxis. You will also see the grand plan for the dvelopment of the city of Meizhou.

Lots of information and displays to understand Hakka culture & customs. As usual, get a local guide to get more out of the tour.

It's a great experience to be able to visit the the museum. It's a great place to learn about the Hakka Culture. The place is nicely done up and great lighting with added multimedia to educate the public. It's worth the trip there.

We visited the Hakka Museum in Meizhou, which is a smallish museum providing history of the Hakka people and their migrations over the years, as well as culture and traditions. There is not a huge amount to see, but it provides a nice short education on Hakka culture. Note – current Tripadvisor address is wrong! It is NOT on Meilong... More

This was my first time to Meizhou, and naturally, to the Hakka Museum. Being a Hakka myself, I thoroughly enjoyed the few hours I spent at the museum. I had learned so much about being a Hakka, the traditions of the Hakka (that are lost in the generations), traditional Hakka "mountain songs,", etc. I had wanted to spend more time... More

Meizhou Hakka museum depicts the roots and hertiage of the Hakka from the early migration and settlement in Guangdong, Fujian and JInangsi. It's an interesting place to visit even if you are not of Hakka origin. But Meizhou now claims fame to me the world Hakka hertiage location. The museum includes details of many many famous Hakka descendants including some... More
