Sam Tung Uk Museum at Kwu Uk Lane, Tsuen Wan was declared a monument in 1981.

Sam Tung Uk was originally a Hakka walled village with over 200 years of history. In the 1970s, the village was relocated elsewhere because of the construction of the Tsuen Wan MTR Station. In order to preserve the village-type structures and relics that reveal the past rural life, the Government converted the village houses into a museum in 1987. Since June 2016, the "Hong Kong Intangible Cultural Heritage Centre" has been set up there with an aim to enhancing the public's understanding and awareness of intangible cultural heritage through educational and promotional activities.
