We took the Wan Chai Gap Trail from Kennedy Road. It is very steep and was a workout for everyone (so not for toddlers). When we got to the destination, it was a big accomplishment and instilled pride in my sons. There was a lot of nature to observe on the trail, with a number of benches and rest stops.... More

I took a bus ride to get here. It's a bit off the beaten track. It's a small but interesting museum, particularly if you have a law enforcement background. Only downside was the "no photographs" greeting as we walked in.

Definitely worth a visit if you are a history buff. It's small, so an hour or two will be plenty. I found the sections on the founding of the force most interesting, but there is also plenty on more recent developments.

Some gruesome history is awaiting to be revealed at HK's police museum. It's small but full of interesting stuff including a tiger shot by officers in Fanling at the turn of the last century and lots of details about Triads and their rituals. Well worth a visit.

Came here on a Friday morning. It's somewhat out of the way, but it is on the way to The Peak. Hours are varied so be sure to check before you go. It is a small museum and can be completed in 20-30 minutes, depending on how in-depth you look at each exhibit. There is a trek up several flights... More

Slightly out of the way but well worth spending an hour or two to visit. Great exhibits helped add some colour to my knowledge of the history of HK. Combine it with a trip up the Peak. Take the 15 bus from Exchange Sq up to the Peak instead of the tourist packed Peak Tram. The museum is most of... More

The Museum traces the history of the HK police force from inception in 1844 to the current day. The displays, although not extensive, are thoughtfully laid out and are interesting to observe. here are a few steps to negotiate to get to the museum. It is a bit of an exercise to get there, I ended up taking a taxi... More

We were on a mission to obtain information about a relative who served in the Hong Kong Police Force 1904 to 1912. Sadly, as good as this museum is in terms of artefacts, it had nothing to help us in our search. We spoke to two volunteers who were unable to assist us. We were also disappointed that taking photographs... More

The museum is very well presented displaying the history, equipment and artefacts concerned with the Hong Kong Police. There is also a display on topics pertinent to policing in Hong Kong such as triads and heroin manufacture which are also informative. Also the gifts at the entrance are inexpensive and good quality. Overall a good museum to visit, especially if... More

Fascinating insight into the history of the (Royal) Hong Kong Police told through the 100 year history of Cheung Chau poice station and various rooms focused on different aspects of HK's past. Very out-of-the-way so takes some finding! No photographs allowed inside was very disappointing.
