This museum is definitely worth a visit to spend at least a couple of hours walking through to absorb some of the history.

Chinese slant against the British, but excellent history of Hong Kong. Recommend you spend at least an hour there

The Museum has free entry. Consult the Museum if you require a special tour; there are guides to give casual assistance if required. The Museum is well worth the visit.
