Modernization left the past things behind and young generations have no relevant knowledge of the old times and how it evolves through the years. The Hong Kong Museum of History has got what it takes in preserving artifacts about the early years of life in Hong Kong and China. Four hundred million years of history were compiled in a 7,000 square meter space for people who are willing to know what, why, how, and when things happened.

The Hong Kong Museum of History provides you a good background of how Hong Kong evolves politically and culturally. It is a great learning place for everyone including children giving much more eloquent explanation of how things happened, why should it be important to know, and what happened in the past then compare it with the present on how people should look at things in different ways. The eight galleries definitely introduce you the full story of Hong Kong and the territory’s return to China in 1997. The replica of village dwellings, traditional Chinese costumes and beds, a recreation of arcade in Central from 1881 including old Chinese Medicine Shop, a tram from 1913, and film footage of World War II including the interview of Chinese and foreigners taken as prisoners by the Japanese will make you appreciate and feel like living in the past.
