  • The Hong Kong Railway Museum is the original site of the old Dapu Village train station, which shows a vehicle card used in Hong Kong before a gas-fired train. There are also a series of cultural relics and historical images, as well as a different model of the railroad, and through this we can understand more about the history of the railroad in Hong Kong.

  • Enough to know the flow of the history of rail transport in Hong Kong S.A.R., including Metro is small. Interesting railway fans, and reproduction of old station inside the description of the hand signals and Tablet occlusion. Exhibits of the vehicle, such as SL and DL, has been published inside the cars. Who did take the transport of their minute current Hong Kong S.A.R. is from the center of the city in the round trip takes about an hour and a half, so a tight schedule might be satisfied.

  • The price is right - free. It is large with lots of space for the kids to run around a bit. There isn’t a lot of people around on the weekends.
  • Excellent Hong Kong train museum. You can imagine the old Hong Kong style after visit this museum. You can take photos here. Meaningful place.
  • Free admission, friendly neighborhood. Pretty good place to spend the afternoon in. It's a small museum though.
  • Very good place to visit. It is very interesting, although it is far from public transport. There are a lot of restaurants around here.
  • Understandably small - there was only the KCR line historically - but still worth a visit to see the restored station and old trains.
