    I love going to museums on trips. This museum is by far one of the best I've been to, it is top tier! I spent half a day there, learned so some.

    They have actual rail cars, tea taverns and such that they strip from the original location and moved into the museum, these are not replicas! Which blew my mind. It's very interactive. I loved it and can't wait to go back when I make my next trip.

    Small but informative museum set in an old Hakka walled village. The staff were very helpful and enthusiastic. Worth a stop if you are interested in Hong Kong history, traditional livelihoods, architecture or Hong Kong's natural beauty. The short trail to the museum is also enjoyable and has many informational plaques about local plants and their uses.

    Went to see the Bruce Lee exhibit which was worth the trip. At the time there was also an Anita Mui exhibit and Jin Yong (learned about him while I was there).

    There is also an exhibit that shows the mighty USD!

    The Hong Kong Science Museum is one of best family attractions in Kowloon. It is located along Science Museum Road just across from the Hong Kong Museum of History in TST East. Opening hours are 10am to 7pm (weekdays) and 10am to 9pm (weekends), closed on Thursdays. Entry fee is HK$20 per person (free for children under 4).

    The museum is spread out over 4 floors and includes 5-6 themed areas around Natural Science, Earth Science, Climate, Motion, Magnetism, Sound and Light. There is a Palaeontology themed gallery under preparation presently that will open later in 2022.

    Within the various galleries there are over 750 exhibitions, over 500 being interactive and children friendly, providing several hours of interesting activities, hands-on activities and learning experiences for the little ones. There is also a 4-storey, 22 metre tall Energy Machine as well which can be viewed and enjoyed from all levels when it has been activated.

    The Science Museum has a gift shop on the ground floor and a small seating area with a handful of tables and drink machines. Otherwise, there are no eateries inside. The good news, you are just a few minutes away from quite a few casual and fast-food restaurants and coffee shops at the Science Museum Path at New Mandarin Plaza just south of the museum.

    In short, the Hong Kong Science Museum is a fun place for families, especially during the hot summer months when trying to avoid the heat and rain. It is a good venue for anyone looking for air-conditioned place to spend a few hours, entertaining children as well as adults with a general interest in science.

    Fully open March 2024. Excellent museum with excellent views across the harbour. Much more than a museum focusing on Coastal Defence. Lots of exhibits outside and a pleasant walk to explore them, though quite a lot of slopes if that is a concern for you. Inside the museum itself, which is lift accessible from street level, the Asia Pacific War/WW2 displays do a great job of tailoring things to your level of interest. If you want to explore in depth they have done a great job of presenting eye witness accounts in numerous short video clips on all sorts of topics.

    The HKMA has some nice collections of ancient Chinese antiques, art as well as some modern exhibits. The exhibition on the upper level about the historic Canton region (modern day Guangzhou province), and its development when exceptional wealth flowed into the trade post was an informative and interesting visit.

    Displays were great. The eyes on some wax models were simply astonishing. A decent range of well known characters. Well worth a visit in line with the Peak trip and Observation tower. Went on a weekday, not crowded as per a weekend. One question...are the models true to their height?

    The former Police Married Quarter (PMQ) in Central was restored and repurposed as a creative and design focused shopping venue in Central back in 2014. You won't find the typical luxury and international brand name shops here However. This is a social project whereby affordable space has been set aside for local entrepreneurs, seeking to showcase and grow their businesses as art courses, galleries, lifestyle and consumable products, clothing, fashion, jewellery and all manner of creative shops. There are a couple of casual eateries and coffee shops as well.

    In short, if you want to see local Hong Kong brands, there are around 100 small shops that line the floors at PMQ. There are also large scale seasonal decorations along with occasional exhibitions and events that have made for interesting experiences and reasons to visit PMQ over the years. You'll find PMQ along Aberdeen Street in Central. Shops have respective opening hours but are generally open from late morning until evening each day. The venue can be a bit crowded during midday weekends and public holidays but is usually far less crowded than our higher end malls.

    The tea museum won’t be for everyone and is a small, niche museum. It’s housed inside the lovely old, colonial Flagstaff House (1846), a very stately white house, which is the oldest colonial building still standing in Hong Kong. Even if you don’t go inside, it’s worth strolling through the grounds of Hong Kong Park, past it.
    Entry is free and it has recently re-opened after closing during the covid 19 restrictions. Some sections are still closed, like the children’s playroom.
    The entire collection is only small with 8 separate rooms but the displays are well supported with good information on tea making ceremonies and traditions. Signs are in both English and Chinese.
    Some teaware dated back to 11th century BC. I found it astonishing to think that 3000+ years ago, people were brewing a cuppa, using these sophisticated, decorative bowls and ewers.
    The blue and white Ming dynasty china was extremely delicate and beautiful but I was equally intrigued by the rustic Yixing earthenware, with teapots and cups that imitated tree trunks and featured realistic looking grasshoppers and toads.
    There’s a small, good quality but expensive gift shop near the entry.
    Afterwards allow some time to wander through Hong Kong Park, past the waterfall, ponds and aviary.

    Didn't expect so much to see in such a small area. Will give 5 stars if the indoor space is air-conditioned.

    But they don’t, sadly. Still, this is a diverting if small museum to wander round for a bit, set aside from a really interesting area of the NT. Lots of information and some old trains here too.

    We didn’t know about this place. Our 8 and 12 year old had a great time which was fantastic as it was a rainy day and kept them busy. Most of the photo opportunities were free with a couple you had to pay the professional photographer as you couldn’t take a picture yourself. The professional shots were expensive but well done.
