“We went for a few hours and spent all day here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

This is one of the best museums we have been to.

We initially went to find out about the history of Hong Kong - thinking we would be there a couple of hours. How wrong that turned out to be we were there all day!

The information and the way the displays were set out were fantastic, with information provided in both English and Chinese. We learnt a great deal - the museum covers the geological development right through the history of Hong Kong to the time when the British handed over rule to China. There is even information on what will happen in the future. Some of the displays/diaromas included celebrations for minority groups, resettlement estates in the 60's, made in Hong Kong toys and electrical items, street scenes etc.


On one day a week there is free entry to the museum - but the entry fee on other days is cheap.
The museum is good for adults and children. The museum is also closed on one day during the week so check before you go.

It is easy to walk to the museum from Tsim Sha Tsui station and the Art Gallery is also well worth visiting ( located on the waterfront).

“Very interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

On a very hot and humid day, this provides a cool and informative place to learn the history of the city and area. Would like to see more about the history since 1997.

“Interesting, engaging presentation of Hong Kong history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

The museum was set up with many life size dioramas and displays with concise explanations in both English and Chinese which depicted both the geographical and social history of Hong Kong. There were short movies, recordings and touch screens which revealed more in depth information if desired.
