Hong Kong Heritage Museum

Description

If there is one museum in Hong Kong you should make a special effort to visit, it is the Hong Kong Heritage Museum in Sha Tin New Town. Located in a wooded setting away from the New Town's highrise housing complexes, the museum's architecture is patterned after the traditional Si He Yuan style, a compound of harmoniously blended houses built around a courtyard. Opened in December 2000, the museum covers 32,000 square metres and is divided into 12 exhibition galleries, each a treasure house of relics of the history, culture and arts of early Hong Kong and the nearby South China region. Special features include a collection of Chinese paintings by the acclaimed artist Zhao Shaoan, and an exhibition tracing the development of Cantonese opera.
