Opened to public in December 2006, Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Museum is housed in the four-storey Grade II historic building Kom Tong Hall and has a floor area of 2,560 square metres. The Museum gives a comprehensive overview of the life and career of Dr Sun, highlighting the Chinese statesman’s intimate relationship with Hong Kong, and the city’s vital role in the reform movements and revolutionary activities in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
Flagstaff House, built in 1846, is the oldest example of Western-style architecture remaining in Hong Kong. Since 1984, it has housed the Museum of Tea Ware, which specialises in the collection, study and display of tea ware.
Commissioned in 1980 and managed by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department, the Hong Kong Space Museumwas the first local planetarium for the popularisation of astronomy and space science. The museum’s east wing that is an egg-shaped dome renders the 8,000-square-metre museum to be one of the famous landmarks in Hong Kong.
