“Informative and excellent exhibits”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2013

I have visited this museum twice. The permanent exhibition are interesting and very engaging. It starts from the prehistoric period to reunification in 1997. A good place to start if you're interested in learning how this tiny fishing village came to be today's global financial hub

“Size isn't everything - compact and excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013

Good size - very enjoyable. Excellent audio-visuals. So interesting to see vintage Hong Kong for real! Some of the displays were quite big compared to the overall size of the museum! Good value tip = visit on a Wednesday - free admission - though admission is not costly to be honest. BTW ... the Science Museum is just next door too!

“Small, but worth a visit”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013

I was told tourists usually do not visit museums when Honk Kong, but shopping insanely is not my kind of trip, so I found it interesting and had a good time. It is a small museum, but worth a visit. Had nice tour guide who showed me all around.

“Decent history museum”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013 via mobile

It's a newer museum with main focus on showing pieces from the Hong Kong history. I didn't feel the history being shown that well nor interesting as in other museums though.

Worth a visit if you have time while in Hong Kong. I went with someone who lives in Hong Kong - we both found it interesting
