Hong Kong Museum Of History, Hong Kong Reviews

  • Great place. You can enjoy while learning a lot about Hong Kong. The pavilion starts from the ancient history of current Hong Kong area and covers a lot of information such as cultural and historical stuff. The interior is also very well made - something you don’t expect from a museum you can enter for free. Especially if you are a tourist and looking for activities on a rainy days, you may want to go there.

  • Wanted to get a chronological history lesson of Hong Kong. Not what I got. Although the displays are nice, there were SEVERAL instances where moving from one display to another just feet away took a thousand year jump in history, and not always forwards, but both directions. Where they made these jumps, they would talk about dynasties and periods with no context. I gained nothing from this museum but frustration.

  • Great museum. Thought I’d only stay for an hour or two but I was so engrossed I ended up staying until closing time. A great crash course in the history of Hong Kong exploring it’s status as a British colony, its relationship with China, Japanese occupation and the identity and culture of the locals.

  • As for the first two sections, better to watch videos, it's more interesting and informative but the information is the same that you will find on the walls. It gives a lot of information about the traditions of local population in the past and present, so it may take a lot of time to read it all. The museum has some full sized exhibits, like houses and boats, the videos are in Chinese and English. Definitely a place worth to visit

  • Very well constructed exhibits with fascinating information. The later exhibits, from the local people and culture onwards, I found more interesting. You could easily spend the entire day here. Wednesdays are free to enter. The Science Museum is just opposite this.
