“Exceptional presentation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

Having a spare afternoon and having been recommended to a special exhibition currently running (Terra cotta warriors and other relics .) I visited this attraction .
As with all museums in HK value is exceptional at HK$10. for entry and i have to say it was one of the best audiovisual displays I have ever seen . Perfectly pitched and beautifully animated it was suitable for all ages . The support given by the myriad (and very rare artifacts ) was perfectly presented . Whoever was in charge of this particular exhibition should be congratulated.
The general secftion of the museum is also very precise and excellently presented giving a good insight into the history of hong Kong . You can find out what is on at any time in any HK tourist office and can book entry if required at any Urbtix outlet .

“An unexpectedly good afternoon”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

Looking to fill half a day in Hong Kong we visited as a family and enjoyed the 2nd 2 thirds of the museum the most. It's a great way to learn more of the polical history and appreciate the rich cultural history Hong Kong has to offer. Inexpensive and well air conditioned :)

“Very concise education on Hong Kong”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

The History museum was well laid out and very spacious . It was easy to follow and at the same time an exhibit on the Terracotta Warriors was on and we were able to go to this as well ( for extra cost) , which was great .

“Terracotta Warriors”

At the time I visited this museum of history they had some of the terracotta warriors there from China; which was very interesting and I highly recommend going there to see this exhibition!
