Well the main HK History section is free, so right away, that's good. Really in-depth histories of the peoples and area/geography of HK. Really great cultural displays where we learned about why my wife and I had to do all these wedding traditions lol

Also paid I think $10HKD for the Treasures of Afghanistan exhibit. That was Truly Excellent.

We had a rainy day and visited this museum. The museum has beautiful exhibits and displays about the history of Hong Kong. We spent a lot of time reading everything. Displays are also in English. We learned a lot about the people and culture of Hong Kong.

A really interesting place to visit and learn all about the history of Hong Kong, starting from millions of years ago to present day Hong Kong. Lots of information and well explained, video clips, interactive games and life size models of a HK Junk, shops, tea room, hair salon, bank etc etc. Well worth going to see, we went on a Wednesday and the entrance was free.

Walked here from our hotel in Nathan Road, thinking we would spend maybe one hour there, but it was over three hours later that we came out. From the beginning to end, the exhibits and story was so well set out and explained, in a very interesting way. Also it is free entrance

I love going to museums on trips. This museum is by far one of the best I've been to, it is top tier! I spent half a day there, learned so some.

They have actual rail cars, tea taverns and such that they strip from the original location and moved into the museum, these are not replicas! Which blew my mind. It's very interactive. I loved it and can't wait to go back when I make my next trip.

Hong Kong's history museum is currently under renovation. While the section on local history is unavailable, it now houses a small collection of Chinese antiquities from Henan province. The exhibition on ancient bronze ware, however, is somehow unrelatable to most foreign visitors. The collection mainly caters to the local Chinese audience. Tourists may want to come at a later period.

Not quite sure what I expected but, as far as museums go, this one is really quite absorbing. It is well laid out and follows a well-thought out plan and sequence. The colourful displays of Hong Kong's culture and traditions were most interesting and informative.

A good way to introduce to HK young generations and foreigners of the old history of Hong Kong. We took our 7 years old child and spent 2 hours looking at the ground floor of old photos and videos. Will go back again in the future.

I went two times. The first time I spend 7h inside the museum and I didn’t read all the the documents! We’re entering on the down of earth and leave in the after recession of Hong Kong. You must take your all day for appreciate this museum. So much to learn! Every room is a new experience. Every times I have friends or family coming in HK, this is a must go!

October 2022. Under renovation/refurbishment - they now only have a small number of items of their collection on display.
Previously there were 2 floors of items on display which took 1 or 2 hours to view.
Now there's only a small selection of items on display - at a guess - around 1/20th of the previous size. You can probably see everything in 15 minutes.
I hope the renovation will completed soon as this current set up is very mediocre compared to before.
