Of the few museums in Hong Kong, this one is by far the best. This has the most comprehensive history of Hong Kong anywhere from the ancient history to the modern area. It is a great way to understand and learn about the various customs...More

Hong Kong museums are affordable and educational. I attended the museum on the opening day of the current exhibit featuring the Silk Road. They have staff who will help you take a photo with authentic Central Asian dress and a yurt!

The impression of Hong-Kong only as a tourist attraction is washed out in a few moments once you enter the museum. The history starts from the Geography of the land and continues to the struggles faced by Hong Kong and leads to the cultural side...More

Tsim Sha Tsui is one of the major tourist and shopping
areas of Hong Kong. With a high concentration of
hotels, retail shops and commercial offices – it’s a
busy and bustling neighbourhood that never sleeps. On
the surface, Tsim Sha Tsui seems to only feature an

designer brands and jewelry, owing to its popularity
with high-budget shopping tours. However, it also

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. :)
