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. :)
