Tucked away at the East Gate of the HK University is the University Museum and Art Gallery. Housed in the historic Fung Ping Shan Building and on two floors of the TT Tsui Building next door, this museum may be small but has much to...More

It is located in Bonham Street and is close to HKU MTR station although I walked from Sai Ying Pun station which is around ten minutes' away on foot. There's a good collection of Chinese artefacts and ceramics, in some cases going back thousands of...More

For those who want some Chinese culture, without being overwhelmed by rooms and rooms of content, this is perfect. Lots of lovely items.

If you find yourself by HKU, definitely stop by their museum. It's small-but it's free-and the collection is truly eclectic, covering centuries and topics-it turned out that I had flown halfway across the globe to see the Kinsey African American Art and History Collection, something...More

Actually this is the first art and historic museum in Hong Kong. Some artefacts are 3500 or more years old and looking at them you see the roots of the modern Chinese design. Maybe it is not close to the centre of Hong Kong but...More

I'd done some background reading and was looking forward to visiting this museum. The artifacts are well laid out for with brief information cards. Although the Neolithic and bronze works were good to look at nevertheless I was left disappointed. You cannot take any photos,...More
