  • It is a museum by using a small, red-brick building. Location is not very helpful in the Hong Kong S.A.R. Island hills tend to be places. I think it's not worth going to doesn't really interest me that exhibits medical artifacts of Hong Kong S.A.R., people. Only Hong Kong S.A.R. colonial red-brick building just look much better I think.

  • Creepy and interesting. Worth $10hkd and 30 mins.
  • This used to be a Pathology Institute where the laboratories of the Medical and Health Department was established. Now it becomes a museum showing the history of medicine. The old equipments were no longer used and it demonstrated how the medical services of Hong Kong advances to become the top three most efficient health care systems in the globe.
  • Interesting exhibits but not a lot to see. Quite a few exhibits were closed when I visited.
  • Hong Kong Museum of Medical Sciences offers indepth knowledge of progress of medical sciences in hong kong. Great place for all kids and adults who are interested in hong kong's beginning in medical science and its progress. The museum charges 20 dollars entry fee.
  • Not a large museum, but still feels complete. Has audiovisual guides to take you through Hong Kong's medical science history.
