Hong Kong Museum of History, Hong Kong: 15 reviews and 38 photos

The museum's collection centres on history, archaeology and ethnography. 19th and 20th century photographs illustrate the development of the former colony, while archaeological finds - the Museum is officially responsible for all excavations in Hong Kong - document all the region's cultural phases, going right back to prehistory. The ethnographical department is concerned with arts and crafts, beliefs and customs, traditional agriculture and architecture. This museum is a must see whilst in Hong Kong.
