The museum consists of a few carriages and engines but not much else. Take a quick look if you are in the area.

Hidden away, it's nice to be in an area of Hong Kong that hasn't been modernised. It'd been a decade since I was last here and it's just as a I remember. Great place to come for a little history and heritage.

It's open air and its free. A number of static display carriages and one restored locomotive as well as some very interesting and multilingual information boards and photos. Well signposted from the surrounding streets otherwise you would miss it.

This little railway museum has expanded to include the history of all railways in the Territory. It has been undergoing a revamp and displays have been limited but this should be complete by Easter. Besides items from the KCR it will now include the MTR.
