1911 Revolution at HK Museum of History

Centenary China's 1911 Revolution
Hong Kong Museum of History
March 2 - May 16, 2011

Hey, if you are visiting Hong Kong these days, there is one exhibition I highly recommend. 2011 marks The Centenary China's 1911 Revolution, the epoch-making event that had far-reaching consequences for the fate of Chinese people.

As a matter of history, Hong Kong was under British control since 1842. Therefore it played an important role in the revolution and served as a safe backup place for the reformers. Revolution leader Dr Sun Yat Sin was educated here and established the first revolutionary alliance here.

Celebrating the centenary of the 1911 Revolution, this exhibition showcases 140 sets of exhibits from the Hubei Provincial Museum and other collections as well as historical images, videso and maps to chart this milestone in China's modern history and also highlight the immense contribution that Hong Kong made to the revolution.

Entry fee HK$10 (Free admission on Wednesday)
