The Hong Kong Museum of History is Pure Treasure

The Hong Kong Museum of History is a very special place.

The building is an amazing, state-of-the-art facility designed by the famous P&T Architects and Engineers Ltd.

At a cost of over $390 Million HKD or $50,039,133.08 USD.

When was the last time anyone spent 50 million dollars on a museum?

The Chinese wanted this building to house and refelect their rich and proud history of their ancestry.

There was literally no expense that was too high to put their great and always triumphant history on display.

You won't find a negative word about China while you are there.

Much of their history is highly questionable in the eyes of many people who made claims to the contrary. They are all dead now because of some disease so everything is ok now.

It's much like reading the daily newspaper in Vietnam a day after reading a top newspaper from the West. The stories, or the bones of them are there.

It's just that the facts are all twisted in a way that makes Vietnam appear much better off than it really is. Even the English language paper they bring in from Thailand is all blacked-out if anything is mentioned of Vietnam.

It was a shock to me when I bought a Bangkok Post in Vietnam and found much of it blacked out.

I got the same feeling in the Hong Kong Museum of History. I won't say what exactly but you kinda feel like you're being led down a road that has had the Pot-Holes painted over.

The resource center provides reference books, periodicals and audio-visual materials about the history of Hong Kong and China through Archaeology, Ethnography and Natural History.

It is located next to the Hong Kong Science Museum so you can make both museums on a single trip.

The standard admission fee is $10HKD but like most of the other Hong Kong Museums it's only $5HKD for full-time students, people with disability and senior citizens over 60.

Budget People must remember that admission is free on Wednesdays. Expect more people, though.

The museum is open Monday and 'Wednesday to Saturday' from 10am - 6pm. On Sundays and public holidays the museum is open from 10am - 7pm.

Remember that the Hong Kong Museum of History is closed on Tuesdays.

Where is The Hong Kong Museum of History?

The Museum of History is located at 100 Chatham Road South, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon, Hong Kong.

The best way to get there is by the MTR. Find a station near where you are staying and get on a train heading in the direction of Tsim Sha Tsui East.

Get off the train at the Tsim Sha Tsui Station and make sure you leave the station through the 'B2 Exit' or you're going to get lost. Maybe.
