The Hong Kong Museum of History is an awe-inspiring museum. It takes you on a journey through time, covering everything from archeology, anthropology, architecture, sociology, and popular culture to animal and plant life.
The museum starts at the very beginning of Hong Kong's history when Hakka settlers from China came to Hong Kong on their Junk boats. As you walk through the museum, there are various movie rooms, displays and recreations of old pawn shops and post offices, which were typical in the colonial days.
The museum was established in July 1975 and moved to its present premises on Chatham Road South, Tsim Sha Tsui in 1998. It is a comprehensive state-of-the-art museum designed by the P&T Architects and Engineers Ltd., based on the architectural concept of Mr. E. Verner Johnson.
