Explore Hong Kong’s rich history and intriguing culture with a visit to one of these four museums during your stay.

 

Hong Kong Museum of History

See every period of Hong Kong history at the Hong Kong Museum of History. There are a wealth of exhibits covering everything from pre-history to the Japanese occupation, but the most impressive is the Hong Kong Story display, which combines eight galleries that give visitors a quick Hong Kong history lesson. There are more than 70,000 artifacts in the museum.

 

Hong Kong Science Museum

The Hong Kong Science Museum is right next door to the Hong Kong Museum of History, making it a perfect stop if you’re already at the latter. Explore science and technology across four stories and more than 500 exhibits. The museum is perfect for anyone with a curious mind, kids and adults alike.

 

Hong Kong Heritage Museum

This museum is the largest in the city and is completely devoted to local art, culture and history. Permanent exhibitions focus on various Cantonese art forms and relics from the past, but rotating, temporary exhibits bring a touch of modernity to the museum, with more pop culture-centric themes. If you visit before July 2020, you can check out the temporary Bruce Lee exhibit.

 

Hong Kong Space Museum

The Hong Kong Space Museum includes the destination’s first planetarium. The museum received an upgrade last year, so you can be one of the first to see the new exhibition halls dedicated to the cosmos and space exploration. Don’t miss the weightlessness experience, called “Disorientation in Space.”
