The museum has been closed for around three years for a major renovation and expansion project, beginning 3 August 2015. By 2019, we will herald a brand new look to Tsim Sha Tsui.

Added this to my itinerary only to go there and find its closed till 2019. However the signs and the website couldn't have been less clear. I wasn't the only one to make the mistake either. Very disappointed

We were interested in going to the museum and we're disappointed to find it now closed for some considerable time - it would have been helpful for the tourist office had advised us.
