This is a big museum, and there is something for everyone here.

The museum arrange your walk in archaeological order. Start from hundreds and thousands of years ago, with stones, fossils, then few thousands ago with Chinese, then few hundred years ago when there were interactions between east and west, then the last 200 hundred years.

There are plenty of exhibits, both replicas and originals. They even have small set ups of farms, fishing boats, temples, Chinese opera, etc.

There are videos in small theatres for more complex issues, like opium war. They rotate the videos in English, Mandarin, Cantonese; but you do not have to wait if you don't have the patience, as Chinese versions have English subtitle, and English videos have Chinese subtitle.

I allowed myself half a day for the museum (as there are so many repetitions with museums all around the world), and I regretted it. I am sure that I will allow one whole day when I come next time.

We went to the terracotta Warrior exhibition at the Museum of History. Entrance fee only $10.00. Many pieces of exhibits - worth a visit!

You could certainly spend a whole day in the museum. All the decription exhibts are in English so there is no need to rent an audio guide. Each section of the museum illustrates a different era and from the people, their lifestyle and politics. This museum is a great insight to the culture of the Chinese people.

It would be sad to leave Hong Kong without learning more about its history. The museum has many sections to explore and the displays really pull you in.
