This museum about Hong Kong's history is really fantastic. The exhibits are well done, including a ship you can walk around on. Everything is multi-lingual, so as an English speaker, I was able to understand and enjoy it.

This is one of the best museums I have ever been to. The displays gave a real feeling for what it would be like to have lived in different places at different times. The costumes, the video presentations and the huge photos made a real...More

This is 2.5 hours well spent and free of charge. The displays are most impressive and very well displayed and captioned. A most worthwhile visit and on the Big Bus Route

What an interesting and free museum. So much to see. We only had time for five levels. We will have to travel back to see the rest!

I recommend this place if you want to know a little bit depth of Hong Kong as a tourist. Also, it is conveniently located within 10 minute of walking distance from MongKok station.

This museum was free during our visit. The first displays start out slow, but as soon as you get to the Opera, it picks up. The Opium Wars models were amazing. Plan to spend several hours here.

Good activity to spend a day to know about the history of Hong Kong! And it’s free!! If they have special exhibition, you can pay a fee to see those as well.

Tsim Sha Tsui
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
abundant number of high-end retail stores selling
designer brands and jewelry, owing to its popularity
with high-budget shopping tours. However, it also

We stayed in Kowloon at the Hotel Icon, probably the best hotel I have ever stayed in. If you stay in Kowloon near the Harbour or a Metro stop its pretty convenient for everywhere.

The museum have guided tours during the day that are free. We did one and it was very informative and better than reading the captions on the displays. You can get the details from their website.

It's confusing a lot of people. The renovation is still at the planning stage. The museum is business as usual. It still closes Tuesdays though.
