This was an excellent museum. They salvaged as much as possible considering the prison went through a World War. All the information, artifacts and pictures provided enough information so you got the drift of what went on in the prison system. My husband retired from...More

This is a really great look at the local corrections service. A really amazing collection of artifacts and historical items. New recruits around training and learning to march...... a lost art. They also sell its for collectors of law enforcement buffs. Well worth the 15...More

Only ten minutes from the village and bus station - just turn left after the old police station and head up Tung Tau Wan Road. The museum is open 10:00 - 17:00 hours Tuesday to Sunday and entry is free. The ground floor mostly charts...More

This is a very interesting museum which is small and probably needs about 1 hour. The introductory video is quite long but worthwhile if you can manage to stand for that long - no seats for some reason. There is a great deal of information...More

The museum is just outside Stanley and close to Stanley goal. It's a small museum but I enjoyed it. Some insights into the development of correctional services in HK. Worth even a short visit.

Very quiet, tiny but you should go. The hi light is the exhibition of dead penalty. ไปที่นี่โดยบังเอิญเพราะนั่งรถเลยตลาดสแตนลีย์ แต่พบว่าน่าไปครับ ได้ความรู้ดี มีการแสดงการประหารชีวิตโดยวิธีแขวนคอด้วย

It's nice that a free museum on this dour subject exists at all. But it's unlikely to take your breath away. The subject matter just isn't sufficiently interesting, though they do try their best.

This history of correctional services and prisons throughout Hong Kong, might not be everyone's cup of tea, but we found it very interesting. Well done to the volunteers who man the museum and share their knowledge with visitors. The exhibits are great and I was...More

Was excited to visit the museum after reading the positive reviews. Nevertheless, I am kinda dissappointed though. There is not much to explore inside the museum, the more interesting parts of the museum are probably the mock prison cell, punishment equipment.. Well, gallery 6 &...More
