Hong Kong Museum of History

The Hong Kong Museum of History is one of the public museums managed by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) of the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region. Its mission is to foster the public’s interest in history, enrich our cultural life, strengthen social cohesion and nurture a national identity, and it fulfils these objectives by collecting, preserving and displaying cultural artefacts closely related to the history of Hong Kong, south China and beyond. In addition to its permanent exhibition “The Hong Kong Story”, the museum presents various thematic exhibitions either on its own or in collaboration with other museums and cultural organisations from Hong Kong, mainland China and overseas.


The museum also organises a wide variety of educational and extension activities, including lecture series, workshops, conferences, field trips, film shows, competitions and family and outreach programmes, to promote public interest in our local history and cultural heritage.


In addition to the Hong Kong Museum of Coastal Defence and the Dr Sun Yat-sen Museum, the Hong Kong Museum of History also manages three small branch museums: the Fireboat Alexander Grantham Exhibition Gallery at Quarry Bay Park; the Lei Cheng Uk Han Tomb Museum in Sham Shui Po; and the Law Uk Folk Museum in Chai Wan.
