  • The museum was discovered by chance in the ninth park, and in November there was a lecture, and it was about the wind. The recent Ming Dynasty porcelain show, which combines the road of silk with the good history of Hong Kong, is worth a visit.

  • Objects from archaeological sites, sunk ships etc. Quite interesting especially if you like cracked porcelain dishes. Kidding. Really nice little museum, worth a visit.
  • Love it due to it's immersive interactive display. Not very big but still nice place to spend an afternoon. There is even a free guided tour.
  • Great place to relax and enjoy a quick crash-course on HK history (for free!). It should take about 30 mins to skim through the exhibits. Drop by here if you're walking through the park and enjoy the historical building . Clean and modern facilities (clean toilets and a/c) and well-staffed. Picnic tables outside, too.
  • Interesting museum that exhibits Hong Kong in the past through present. Free to enter, and it is cool inside!
  • Amazing place great historic stuff here, amazing maintenance and its free
