Hong Kong Museum of Medical Sciences at Caine Lane in Sheung Wan is formerly the Old Pathological Institute (also known as Bacteriological Institute).
Opened in 1906, the Old Pathological Institute was the 1st purpose-built public health and medical laboratory in Hong Kong. Comprising 2 upper floors and a basement, the red-brick structure was built in the Edwardian style. It was declared a monument in 1990.
Established at the building in 1996, Hong Kong Museum of Medical Sciences provides various exhibition galleries introducing the development of Chinese Traditional Medicine and Western Scientific Medicine in Hong Kong and Hong Kong’s medical heritage.
