    Great little gem, with an excellent view. The real draw here is the currency "museum" on the 55th floor, which contains a wealth of information. Did I mention it is all free?

    Really enjoy being at the currency museum on the 55th floor. The view is pretty good and the exhibitions were engaging. For example, did you know that the HKD was and is still is pegged to the USD?

    Great view from the 55th floor. A free museum charting the use of money in HK. Good for people interested in economics and finance. You need an official I'd to get in, e.g. A passport
