  • A good side excursion inside Kowloon Park. Can spend 1 hour or so exploring the heritage and mainly the architecture of Hong Kong  more »
  • Free museum in the park. It's a nice place to pop in if you're in the park already but there's not much to see. I was disappointed because we travelled a long way for not much.  more »

  • The old barracks building itself isn't particularly beautiful (although it is distinctive of a once-common architectural style in Hong Kong), but the exhibition space is fantastic. A lot of it covers Hong Kong's prehistorical heritage and local indigenous Chinese culture and architecture. Some of the ancient ceramic crafts are incredible - intricate objects that date back 6000 years found across the beaches and valleys of Hong Kong. A good place to visit if you're interested in Chinese heritage or conservation.
  • Small building but some interesting exhibits. Good information on artifacts from the area as well as projects to preserved Hong Kong's heritage. There is even a small library. Bi-lingual explanations, except for some video clips. Worth a quick visit.
