When we were at the top of the mid levels escalators, we wandered around and came across the Dr Sun museum. In a grand building, lots of historic photos, and interesting videos. There was a children's video which I enjoyed watching as a simple introduction to the life of Dr Sun.Very peaceful surroundings. If you are interested in history it... More

Today is 10/10-- The Double Ten as we Chinese are fond of recollecting this fateful date. 105 years ago, Chinese Revolutionaries under Dr. Sun Yat Sen started the Uprising that finished off the Ching Dynasty. The visit to the Museum is a must for locals and Chinese visitors. There were twelve Nationalst flags permanently displayed at the entrance to the... More

The museum is tucked away about Hollywood Road in the midlevels. I hoped to learn a lot from it as I don't know much about that period of Chinese History and only had a rough idea of Sun Yat Sen's role in it. However, it is strangely curated with confusing gaps along the timeline. A lot of the photographs were... More

“The Father of Modern China’s” lifelong crusade was to bring China out of the “Dark Ages” of the 19th century late Qing period into a 20th century united Republic of China, which he achieved with the revolution of 1911. This museum, housed in a beautifully restored old mansion in the old part of downtown Hong Kong, traces that path with... More

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. There is so much to discover and learn from the early life of Dr Sun Yat Sen in Hong Kong as in the many... More
