Hong Kong Museum of Medical Sciences reviews
Interesting place but it seems like their main. Premiss was to show case the plague that occured. It is a good place if you want to learn about that but in general there is not a lot of information about the history of Hong Kong medical system. They do have some very cool display and the building it self is quite unique for the area. Recommend checking it out if you have time.
Pretty interesting museum. Well kept, friendly staff. Opening hours differ to what google states (see pic)
