Hong Kong Museum of Art

Last updated: 05 April, 2024

Hong Kong’s most prolific museum has one of the world’s largest permanent displays of Chinese fine art and antiquities, as well as local contemporary art, all set against the beautiful backdrop of Victoria Harbour.

A wide variety of visiting exhibitions maintains the museum’s international outlook, whilst an interesting collection of historical paintings and prints shows the visual change of Hong Kong from the 18th century.

The Historical Pictures Gallery is one of the highlights, with Chinese watercolours, oil paintings and pencil drawings depicting the region in and around Hong Kong from the late 18th century through to the late 19th century. Ideal for a rainy day, or if the outdoor humidity starts to overwhelm.
