Before revitalisation, PMQ was built in 1951 as the Police Married Quarters. In November 2010, the HKSAR Government announced the plan to preserve the site for creative industries uses. The operating right was awarded to PMQ Management Co, Ltd, a non-profit-making social enterprise set up by the Musketeers Education and Culture Charitable Foundation Ltd., in collaboration with the Hong Kong Design Centre, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, and Hong Kong Design Institute of the Vocational Training Council.

It's a great place to see the products from local artists. Great place for relaxation on weekend with a nice garden. This is also a historical place and unveil the way of living of Hong Kong in 1970's.
This new arts hub occupies the modernist buildings and breezy courtyard of the old married police quarters (c 1951). You'll see the usual suspects – design studios, cafes, galleries and a bookstore. The site's earliest incarnation was a temple built in 1843, which was subsequently replaced by Central School, where Nationalist leader Dr Sun Yat-sen once studied. Remnants of the school remain. PMQ is bounded by Hollywood Rd (north), Staunton St (south), Aberdeen St (east), and Shing Wong St (west).
An ex police married quarters renovated to become a hub for innovation and creativity. Artists and entrepreneurs can rent spaces within PMQ to showcase and sell their products and ideas. Most items sold here are locally designed, but I did spot some foreign imports (such as the Fjallraven Kanken backpacks) on display.
Great place for people who would like to find some hand made stuffs. Tri-pods are prohibited due to the management issues.
