You can’t miss Hong Kong’s history museum at 100 Chatham Rd S, Tsim Sha Tsui.  

The Hong Kong Museum of History was established in July 1975 when the City Museum and Art Gallery was split into the Hong Kong Museum of History and Hong Kong Museum of Art. Apart from the main museum at Chatham Road South, the Hong Kong Museum of History runs five branch museums, namely the Hong Kong Museum of Coastal Defence at Shau Kei Wan, the Lei Cheng Uk Han Tomb Museum at Sham Shui Po, Law Uk Folk Museum at Chai Wan, Fireboat Alexander Grantham Exhibition Gallery inside the Quarry Bay Park and Dr. Sun Yat-sen Museum in the Mid-Levels of Central. 

More than a museum, the Hong Kong history museum acts like a hub that included various programmes which let people use and engage. For instance, different types of exhibitions and publications such as the newsletter or even research projects. Try to explore by visiting their website or the museum itself.  

Here are the public programmes they hold through the month of October till December: https://hk.history.museum/documents/54401/19834746/MH_EAposter_10-12.2021(update_11Oct).pdf
