A great way to start a trip to Hong Kong by learning a bit about its history. Free admission and a very well organized chronology. Took us about two hours so well worth the visit

Absolutely marvelous. Free admission, and not crowded (on the day of our visit, which was a Sunday). The exhibits show the history of Hong Kong, from prehistoric to post-handover. Very informative and nicely done. For those historic buffs, the Opium War and the Japanese Occupation...More

So good that we went back to "complete " our visit despite only having 3 days to see the sights. Informative, well laid out and presented in a way to satisfy the needs of both young and old.

This museum is nicely organized into 6 sections from the start to current time of Hong Kong development. You can take photos which is nice.

Excellent museum, so well laid out with a complete history from the beginning until the present. Such interesting exhibits, beautiful installations, easy to understand videos and written explanations. Completely recommend this. Leave yourself at least two hours to see it. Very clean restrooms also!

We are planning to visit later this month and will be coming from the Hong Kong SkyCity Marriott Hotel. 1) Is there currently a fee to enter the permanent exhibitions? 2) Can you recommend a way using the ferry? Thanks!

Hi, The HK Museum of Art opposite the Peninsula Hotel in Tsim Sha Tsui is closed. But this is the HK Museum of History and Culture. It was fully open when I visited it ten days ago.

You can take the bus (A21) from the airport and get off at the 18th stop (Hong Kong Science Museum) which is just next to Hong Kong Museum of History. :)
