Law Uk Folk Museum at Kut Shing Street in Chai Wan was originally Law Uk, a Hakka village house with a history of over 200 years and named after the original owner, surnamed Law. Law Uk is a typical example of 3-jian (bay), 2-lang (chamber) Hakka vernacular architecture. A light well stands between the front door and the main hall of the house, and is flanked by bedrooms, a kitchen and a storeroom. The forecourt of Law Uk used to be an area for grain and laundry drying, as well as social gatherings. Declared a monument in 1989, Law Uk is the only Hakka village house left intact in Chai Wan.
Upon completion of renovation, the house was opened as Law Uk Folk Museum for display of village furniture and traditional farming implements.
