I've been to many city museums and this is among the best. It's a large animated museum, with multiple mini-film shows throughout your tour. They offer limited free guided tours in English and Chinese as well. We spent 3 hours here, I would allow for at least 1.5-2 hours and you could certainly spend more time than that. Entry was FREE which is great, yet I would have no qualms paying an entry fee as the experience is worth it. Very educational from many facets and helps you learn and appreciate the history and evolution of Hong Kong.
One of the best museums I have visited. Its life size exhibits put you in another world. Educational movies explain more background. We planned a two hour visit and ended up spending almost the entire day. Our kids who speak only little English and no Chinese were well entertained and learned a lot nevertheless. I recommend this museum to anyone visiting Hong Kong as it gives you a much deeper understanding of what you see outside.
Can't I rate higher than 5 stars? 🤣 One of the best museum I've ever entered! So huge and have a lot of awesome information covered in awesome exhibits. The story line is clear, though it may make you a bit overwhelmed, but the experience was nice. Recommended. ☺️
A reasonably good museum and it's free. I generally am not interested in prehistory so I passed through this section pretty quickly but for those that like this period, it looked quite good. The ethnic group displays we're very interesting and well put together. My main problem is the victimhood feel it had to the place when it came to colonial history and Japanese occupation. While these events are certainly not beyond a great deal of criticism, I think it's unbecoming of a national museum to portray it's people as victims and, of course, it's relationship with the mainland is a very mute point.
Enjoyable with great full sized recreations of Hong Kong throughout the ages. It's interesting to see different stalls and artifacts that are hard to see unless you're here a certain times of year. Has old street style architecture inside and the Chaozhu temporary exhibit is definitely worth a look in. Great way to spend some time before the light show.
