HONG KONG MUSEUM OF HISTORYWednesday, December 26, 2012
Visiting a museum was part of our itinerary in Hong Kong since my 9-year-old nephew, Gael was with us. Hong Kong Museum of History was the perfect informative attraction that can be enjoyed by both children and adult. I also wanted to know the history of Hong Kong on how it had become the city it is today.

|Prehistoric Hong Kong|
This gallery outlines the development of Hong Kong from Han to Qing dynasties through the relics preserved in the territory. Immigration gave Hong Kong's economy a significant boost. In this gallery you will see a wide array of pottery exhibits preserved from the past.
You can also examine diverse costumes from the locals of the past.
