Established in 1975, Hong Kong Museum of History was moved from the temporary accommodation in Kowloon Park to its present premises at Tsim Sha Tsui East, next to Hong Kong Science Museum in 1998. It is a comprehensive state-of-the-art museum with a collection of over 140 000 historical objects and materials.
At present, the Museum complex has an area of 8 000 sq m for staging exhibitions, including a Special Exhibition Gallery of 1000 sq m and a Permanent Exhibition Gallery of 7 000 sq m. It also provides a lecture hall and several activity rooms for organising various educational and promotional activities.
"The Hong Kong Story" permanent exhibition, the Museum's main attraction, is temporarily closed from October 2020 onwards for an extensive revamp. While the exhibition is preparing for a new look, the "Recreating a Classic: The Best Features of The Hong Kong Story" is curated to showcase the highlights of "The Hong Kong Story", featuring about 460 sets of selected exhibits and 210 photos.
