Walking into the place, you get a sense of traditional, colonial, quiet side of Hong Kong amongst all the business outside. It's worth a visit when you are walking up to the peak of on your way coming down through Kotewall Road.

This is a slightly unusual museum in terms of subject and also in terms of presentation. When exploring the first floor I was really wondering if I had wasted my time as the most interesting aspect seemed to be the rather magnificent mansion it is set within. However when you move up to the next floor there is a very... More

The museim is interesting if you have an interest in Dr. Sun or in Chinese history. There are a lot of great pictures and some artifacts that tell the story of Sun very well. The museum is far off the "beaten path" (so to speak). It was hard to find and very difficult to get back to where we were... More

Nice and informative. Good place to get out of the sun in the summer and also from the busy streets. On display is information about Sun Yat Sen's role in bring down the Ching government and how the Chinese Republic was formed. There are replica of his clothing, documents and photos.

We accidentally found the museum along the historical trail on an early Sunday morning. The museum display was pretty static with running documentary in the video room to provide some action and sound to the place.

Dr. Sun Yat Sen is a highly regarded political activist in Hong Kong. Here you will find lots of pictures and historical documentations. Will history be overwhelming, you can enjoy a beautiful building restored to its former glory. Considering how many school classes that was there on my visit, it is easy to understand the value of preserving Dr Sun... More

If you feel a bit bemused by the photographs of people you've never heard of on the first floor of this impressive, classically fronted museum among high-rise residential blocks, head up to the second floor for an 11 minute video on the life of the man who is claimed to be the father of modern China. The various artefacts on... More

This palatial building of 1914 was the home of a Chinese gentleman, Ho Kom Tong grown rich from his role as go-between (“compradore”) for Jardine Matheson. It then became the community house of the Mormons until 2004. It was saved from destruction by a civic movement. The government bought it, renovated it and turned it into this museum to Dr.... More

Staying in Central

Neighborhood Profile
When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The area widely known as Central is the major financial hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open late into the night and there just happens to be a street party every weekend. Although everything seems to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of quiet, hidden gems. Nestled between office towers are wet markets and some of the city’s oldest restaurants dating back to the 1960s. Feeling a bit overwhelmed? Retreat from the crowds by exploring beautifully restored historical buildings and even a green oasis of botanical gardens.
