Hong Kong Museums


Dear museum fans

Here is an important link which contains valuable information about four museums around Tsimshatsui area in Kowloon.

Location wise, they are two by two, quite nearby to each other.

Group One
Hong Kong Space Museum‎
10 Salisbury Rd, Kowloon‎ +852 2721 0226‎

Hong Kong Museum of Art‎
10 Salisbury Rd, Kowloon‎ +852 2721 0116‎

These two museums are just next to each other and at the harbourfront of Kowloon overseeing the Victoria Harbour and Hong Kong Island. Visit the Museum Café at the podium of the Hong Kong Museum of Art and enjoy a scenic and leisure afternoon high tea before continuing your museum journey.

Group Two

Hong Kong Museum of History‎
Chatham Rd S, Kowloon‎ +852 2724 9042‎

Hong Kong Science Museum‎
2 Science Museum Rd, Hong Kong‎ +852 2732 3232‎

These two museums are just next to each other. However they will require some 15 minutes walk from the other two museums. I would suggest to take a short taxi ride (minimum fare will do) to save time for exploring the museums.

For All Four Museums

There are regular shows and themed shows. Entrance fee of HK$10-20 will be required. FREE admission on Wednesday.

At the main entrance of the Hong Kong Park, there is the Lock Cha Tea Shop, a vegetarian restaurant where you can enjoy a peaceful meal while doing the Chinese Art of Tea on yourself. Right next to it is the Flagstaff House Museum of Tea Ware. Don't forget to explore the beautiful Hong Kong Park before you go.
