Hongkong Racing Museum

Hurry to the Hong Kong Racing Museum

When you travel to Hong Kong, you will find many different things to do that will attract your attention. One of the most interesting and unique places to go is the Hong Kong Racing Museum.

Created by the Hong Kong Jockey Club and dedicated to educating the public on the history of horse racing in the Hong Kong area, the Hong Kong Racing Museum opened its doors in 1996. The museum is located at the Happy Valley Racecourse on Hong Kong Island, and you can even see the track from the museum.

The museum features a number of different galleries and exhibits. The Origin of Our Horses provides a good look at the migration route that horses travelled from northern China all the way to Hong Kong.

Shaping Sha Tin provides an overview of the history of the racetrack and includes many displays of different riding equipment. You can even weigh yourself the same way the jockeys do, just to see how you stack up!

Understanding Horses is a very interesting gallery, where you can learn all about the physiology of horses. On display here is the full skeleton of Silver Lining, a three time Hong Kong champion. This horse was one of the most famous in the nation.

You can also find a variety of special exhibits at the museum that change on a semi-regular basis. One of the most popular of these special exhibits right now is the 2008 Olympic Equestrian Exhibition. It includes information about equestrian events in the Olympics, costumes, torches, medals, and more. This is the first exhibition ever held in Hong Kong that is dedicated entirely to the Olympics.

You can also see if you have an eye for designs at the Racing Silks Design Station. You can learn to create your own racing uniform, and even get a certificate that shows your design. It is fun for adults and children alike.

Stop by the souvenir shop and check out some of the different items that you can get to commemorate your visit to the museum. You are sure to find something interesting that you want to bring home with you.

While Hong Kong offers many different things for people to see and do, you should not miss the opportunity to visit this unique museum. It is a great way to spend a few hours and afterward, you can grab a bite to eat and head out to experience some of the hong Kong nightlife.
