Lei Cheng Uk Han Tomb Museum is located at Tonkin Street in Sham Shui Po.
Lei Cheng Uk Han Tomb was discovered in 1955 when the Government was levelling a hill slope at the north end of Tonkin Street for the construction of Lei Cheng Uk Estate. The structure of the tomb, inscriptions on the tomb bricks and tomb finds suggest that the tomb was built in the Eastern Han Dynasty (25 -220). Archaeologists unearthed 58 burial objects from the tomb, including 50 pottery and 8 bronze objects. The Han Tomb was declared a monument in 1988.
Apart from displaying the pottery and bronze objects excavated from the tomb, the Museum also stages an exhibition introducing the tomb and the discovery of it.
Han Garden is next to Lei Cheng Uk Han Tomb Museum. Designed in the style of a Han Dynasty garden featuring classical pavilions and bridges with a pond surrounded by trees, the Garden is a leisure spot of the residents.
