The Hong Kong Museum of History has built up an impressive array of pieces, which are divided into four distinct areas – natural, archaeological, folk-custom, and local history. Among the many displays are replicas of village dwellings, old-fashioned streets, and various other artefacts, such as a model of a Chinese medicine shop and a tram from 1913.
The Hong Kong Story is a permanent exhibition at the museum. This takes visitors on a journey through Hong Kong’s fascinating past via eight galleries, beginning with prehistoric Hong Kong and finishing with the territory’s return to China in 1997. Other than the permanent exhibition, the museum also features a number of special exhibitions throughout the year, some of which require an extra admission fee.
To reach the Hong Kong Museum of History, alight at Tsim Sha Tsui, Jordan, or Tsim Sha Tsui East subway stations and walk to the museum’s location at 100 Chatham Road South. The admission fee is HK$10, although entrance on Wednesdays is free. Opening hours are 10am to 6pm Monday to Wednesday and Fridays, and 10am to 7pm on Saturdays, Sundays, and public holidays. Free guided tours are held in English at 11am daily.
