If you find yourself by HKU, definitely stop by their museum. It's small-but it's free-and the collection is truly eclectic, covering centuries and topics-it turned out that I had flown halfway across the globe to see the Kinsey African American Art and History Collection, something I had not seen in the US.

We thought we would walk around the western end of the island and check out the university museum and art gallery. They are very easy to find on the campus and are in two separate buildings next to one another. Both are small in size but had interesting collections When we were there the museum had lots of ceramics and... More

While there are many art galleries around the streets of Hong Kong, there's a dearth of art museums - the only city art museum is currently closed for renovations, so when I saw that the university had an art museum I got my hopes up. But they were let down. Firstly, this place is also undergoing renovations, and it's confusing... More

Located inside a small historical building, near to the entrance of University. Chinese antiques, artefacts in one building. Regularly changed modern art exhibitions at the next building. Intersting pictures.

I was walking through The University of Hong Kong this morning and happened to wander into the museum. It is small but very well done. The featured exhibit was a series of paintings of TV screens representing significant events in Hong Kong's and the world's history. I would recommend checking it out if you are in the area.

Actually this is the first art and historic museum in Hong Kong. Some artefacts are 3500 or more years old and looking at them you see the roots of the modern Chinese design. Maybe it is not close to the centre of Hong Kong but not too far away either. I was not disappointed.

I'd done some background reading and was looking forward to visiting this museum. The artifacts are well laid out for with brief information cards. Although the Neolithic and bronze works were good to look at nevertheless I was left disappointed. You cannot take any photos, so all you can take away is a small leaflet on the museum. The museum...

The University of Hong Kong Museum and Art Gallery is nice collection of art and antiquities, housed in the Fung Ping Shan Building, accessible from Bonham Road. While not a feature museum or gallery in Hong Kong, the items on display here are quite nice to see and there are occasional special exhibitions that make it worth making a special... More

The museum accessible from Bonham Road is a great and lofty building, with noble old interiors and furnishings. Linked cavernous halls reveal a larger space than it seems from the street level. The permanent collection of celadon, porcelain, furniture and carvings is very tasteful, beautifully maintained and demonstrated in an accessible and welcoming manner. There is also a big collection... More
