Hong Kong Museum of History

One of the top museums in town and also free of charge for its permanent exhibits, Hong Kong Museum of History chronicles 400 million years of this island's history. That is indeed a massive amount of time to explore and understand. Spread across eight galleries, this bi-level repository is like stepping on a time-travel machine. Dioramas, multimedia exhibits and graphic panels give insight into the topography, nature, culture, history and growth of Hong Kong. With thousands of objects creating a storyline that is exciting and engaging, there is probably no other museum in the city that is as comprehensive as the Hong Kong Museum of History. They also have special exhibitions at times. However they have an entrance fee to it.

Cat Street Gallery

The Cat Street Gallery is committed to exhibiting the best of international contemporary and modern art by both established and emerging artists. The Cat Street Gallery opened in November 2006 in it's first home in Cat Street with a group show of Australian artists including David Bromley and recent Archibald Prize winner Guy Maestri and held various exhibitions before moving to 222 Hollywood Road in February 2008. The Cat Street Gallery is a bit different. Nestling amidst the cold store meat packers and coffin shops of downtown Hollywood Road. Vibrant, edgy and mercurial, it is a gallery that likes to make a noise.

Hong Kong Science Museum

The mysteries of the world are revealed in this information-packed, scientific fun house. Over 500 exhibits, of which many are hands-on, help to answer questions such as: How many atoms do you weigh? What is an atom, anyway? Have you ever taken a quantum leap? And, if so, how many calories did you lose? These questions and many more will be answered at this excellent educational, entertaining half-day jaunt through the magical and logical world of science. A delightful treat for children, Hong Kong Science Museum makes for a fun family excursion in the city.

Hong Kong Correctional Services Museum

The Hong Kong Correctional Services Museum showcases an educational glimpse into the city's penal system. Each of its 10 galleries retain a theme of its own, and traces the history and evolution of prison life. Uniforms, weapons, equipment and memorabilia comprise the display of over 600 artifacts. One of the most interesting exhibitions is the inventive artillery handcrafted by Vietnamese prisoners from bottles, plastic and diapers that illustrate the officials' rehabilitative efforts. The mock gallows and cells make for an intriguing visit. Head here if crime and imprisonment fascinate you, and leave with an unique insight into the region's history.

Hong Kong Museum of Medical Sciences

This off-the-beaten-path gem is worth seeking out for its historical edifice and unusual collection. Established in 1996, it is housed in a historic colonial-era building that was originally the Bacteriological Institute during the late 19th century. To find the place, go to the Man Mo Temple on Hollywood Road, walk up Ladder Street, and turn right onto Caine Lane. The museum offers a fascinating glimpse into the history of medicine and healthcare in Hong Kong through a wide range of topics, including traditional Chinese medicine, the evolution of Western medicine in the region, public health initiatives, and the battle against infectious diseases like tuberculosis and smallpox. Adjacent to the museum is a medicinal herb garden, which is worth visiting.
