I visited the museum on a Wednesday, when admission is free. There were a few school groups, but they mostly congregated towards the Museum of Science, on the other side of the complex. The main exhibition is called "The Hong Kong Story" and traces Hong Kong's history from prehistory all the way up to the transfer of Hong Kong from the British colonial rule to China. It's a well-curated experience that highlights a lot of the essential historial points, filling in the many holes a tourist or visitor might have in understanding the complex and colorful past that makes Hong Kong special.
