|About these ratings|
From dinosaurs to Disneyland, the Hong Kong Museum of History showcases the geography, cultures, and artwork of this urban metropolis. Over 185,000 square feet in size, this large complex boasts exhibits—like "Prehistoric Hong Kong" and "Folk Culture in Hong Kong"—that attract all types of visitors, including families, history buffs, and art connoisseurs. One recent TripAdvisor user remarks, "I thoroughly enjoyed the presentation of artifacts [...] I also like the sense of continuity of the museum, giving you a feel that you are travelling through time."
You'll find the Hong Kong Museum of History in the Tsim Sha Tsui neighborhood on the Kowloon Peninsula. Consider pairing a visit here with the Star Ferry Pier or the Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade. The complex is a short walk from the Hung Hom and Tsim Sha Tsui MRT stations. The exhibition galleries are open Wednesday through Monday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and until 7 p.m. on Sundays and public holidays. Admission costs $10 HKD (about $1.28 USD).
