If you visited any of the Hakka villages in GuangDong or FuJian provinces, or if you plan to visit any of them, this museum is a must, It will give you in a very clear and presentable way the necessary background of this interesting ethnic group of Han Chinese. Do not miss it.

Main building of museum still closed in April 2019
Apr 2019 • Friends
Our tour group went to visit the Museum near the end of April 2019, and was very disappointed to find out that the Main Museum had been closed for over one year. There was not much to see in the other buildings as they contain mainly display boards of biographies of Hakka university presidents and generals. What is most baffling is that the Museum has not posted any notice about the closure of the Main Museum on its official website! This service attitude is appalling.

It was extremely disappointing that it was closed from 9 April 2018

I had walked to Hakka museum after visiting Thousand Buddhas temple. However, it was so unfortunate that the museum was closed 2 days ago, from 9 April 2018 ,purportedly for refurbishment.
Tourists who contemplate to visit this museum are advised to double check the reopening date. It is unknown if the free entrance would be ceased after renovation.

Nice exhibition rooms & presentation of the ancestry of Hakka people
Sep 2017 • Friends
The museum is dedicated to the history of Hakka (Hakka Han) people, their ancestry, language, culture, customs, clothes, tools, household wares, and architecture.

There are 56 official or recognized as major ethnic groups in China, of which Han Chinese comprise 91.59% of China’s total population. Thus, China has 55 ethnic minorities. However, many of the ethnic groups have varying ancestries and languages. The Hakka people are a variant group of Han Chinese, are sometimes referred to as Hakka Han, and have their own Hakka language, which is a variant mix of both Mandarin and Cantonese. They are widely spread through the provinces of Guangdong, Fujian, Jiangxi, Guangxi, Sichuan, Hunan, Zhejiang, Hainan and Guizhou, and also I Taiwan, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, and Jamaica. Hakka people originally lived in northern China and moved south with the defeat of the Nan Song dynasty in the 1270s. This branch of Han people currently numbers about 80 million, of which most no longer speak the Hakka language.

There is no admission fee.

So much history great visit. Just over the bridge. Great to read on the Hakka history who's language and tradition is slowly being lost. But third generation are slow seeing the value in the Hakka and trying to maintain traditions
