It is situated inside the Hong Kong Park which is in the middle of the city. To get there, you can go by the MTR and walk about 15minutes. The permanent exhibition on the ground floor was closed for renovation when we were there. However they are having another exhibition on the 1st floor until next year. It's free to... More

Within Hong Kong Park, the FHM of Tea Ware is open free to the public. The museum provides a wonderful overview and history of tea and tea ware in China and incredible tea ware art. The museum is worth a visit in order to understand the importance of tea in HK/China's culture.

This museum is free but not particularly interesting to me. Eating and drinking tea at the teahouse next to the museum is expensive. You can have better and cheaper tea and dim sum at other places in Hong Kong.

We stopped in here unplanned, while wandering through the wonderful Hong Kong Park. We were stunned to find such a great set of exhibits and education on tea and tea ware. Very interesting! There were hardly any tourists there when we went, so it must not be well known. Even if you are not a tea lover, it is worthwhile... More

Located inside HK park in the former residence of the chief of British military. The building itself is interesting if one can imagine the life style of a British military officer when HK was a British colony - the ambiance of the surrounding, the size of the mansion... Etc. The museum has a display of mainly Chinese hand made antique... More

Hong Kong's oldest building hosts a museum dedicated to tea, tacking you back centuries to the development of tea as a drink, its related tea ware, and traditions in China. Well worth a visit.

It's a part of Hongkong park and it's free of charge, not bad for starters. Museum itself has some interesting tea porcelain from the past, explanation of tea history around China and very efficient air conditioning - important during hot summer days. Good place to spend some time, especially when you are tea lover.

I must admit I'm not a huge teadrinker. But visiting the museum made me understand the importance of the ceremoni of preparing and drinking tea. An informative experience!

I spent an enriching one hour at this small but quaint little Museum of Tea Ware sited in HK Park. There are just 4 rooms but if you are interested in tea and all it entails, this museum is packed with just that info. There are all the different types of teas from different regions and how they are prepared... More

This museum is not at all what it is cracked up to be unfortunately. The items on display may have historical value but so few things. Thankfully it was free and turned out to be a good spot for people watching. :(

Staying in Central

Neighbourhood Profile
When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The area widely known as Central is the major financial hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open late into the night and there just happens to be a street party every weekend. Although everything seems to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of quiet, hidden gems. Nestled between office towers are wet markets and some of the city’s oldest restaurants dating back to the 1960s. Feeling a bit overwhelmed? Retreat from the crowds by exploring beautifully restored historical buildings and even a green oasis of botanical gardens.
