Hong Kong Museum of History

A Trip to the Hong Kong Museum of History

The Hong Kong Museum of History, which was established in 1975 when the City Museum and Art Gallery split into two entities, is one of the most visited tourist attractions in the entire city. Many of the collections in the museum date further back to when the original museum was founded in 1963.

Currently, the museum resides at a large building on Chatham Road South. Though it has moved around, this state of the art museum continues to be a huge draw. It contains many artifacts and exhibits that thrill both locals and tourists alike. Everyone can find something interesting among the different galleries at the museum.

The Natural Environment

This gallery has two areas, "Landform and Climate" and "Flora and Fauna." In the first section, "Landform and Climate," you will see the history of the geography of China and Hong Kong. You can view fossils and explore the history of the land from 400 million years ago.

The "Flora and Fauna" section contains a forest of massive trees, as well as a number of specimens of birds and mammals. The soundtrack that plays throughout this section is enough to make you believe you are actually walking through a primeval wilderness area.

Prehistoric Hong Kong

Here you can learn about the old cultures that made up the area during the Neolithic period. You can see many different artifacts found by archaeologists, including pieces made from stone, pottery, and bronze. This section includes several lifelike scenes that show what life was like in those ancient times. It is quite interesting. You will also get to see an actual rock carving from the era.

The Dynasties

Here is a large area to explore. You can learn everything you ever wanted to know about the different dynasties that make up China's past. You can discover dynasties from the Han to the Qing.

At this exhibit, you will learn all the important things that happened during the long history of China and the emperors that ruled.

Folk Culture in Hong Kong

Here you can learn about the unique cultural practices of many of the people who inhabit the area. You can step aboard and actual fishing junk and you can learn about the Hoklo people who produced and manufactured salt. You can see many of the different customs with which people in the area grew up. This is a great place to get a feel of the old culture.

Of course, the museum has so much more to offer to the visitor. No matter how many times you've been to the museum, there is always something new to see.
