MUSEUMS 

TEMPORARY CLOSURE OF MUSEUMS - Owing to the latest situation regarding the COVID-19 pandemic and the enhanced need for social distancing all museums operated by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department and also Hong Kong Maritime Museum will be temporarily closed from 15th July 2020 until further notice

In response to the Hong Kong Government’s enactment of Emergency Response Level for the COVID-19 pandemic all museums operated by the Government's Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) were temporarily closed from 29th January 2020. Museums were reopened fully or partially during May and June 2020 but with precautionary measures such as temperature checks and advisory wearing of face masks. Interactive exhibits at some museums may still be closed. 


Hong Kong has a wide variety of excellent museums illustrating the history, heritage and culture of Hong Kong ranging from large museums with both permanent and temporary exhibitions, interactive and “hands-on” exhibits to small folk museums. Some museums make an admission charge* which compares very favourably to museum admission charges in other major cities, others are free and all museums operated by the government’s Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) offer free admission on at least one day a week. Most visitors, adults and children alike, will find something of interest in many of these museums. Detailed below are museums listed by geographical location, Hong Kong Island, Kowloon and New Territories. Select the appropriate link for museum description, photos, location, opening hours, admission fees, directions and websites.

* with effect from 1st August 2016 all LCSD museums except Hong Kong Space Museum and Hong Kong Science Museum will offer free admission to their permanent exhibitions. Hong Kong Space Museum and Hong Kong Science Museum will offer free admission to their permanent exhibitions to full-time Hong Kong students only.
