A beautiful and historical building at the top of HK Park. Friendly n helpful staff. Free short (~20 mins) Art/ architecture or the like movies at lunch time every day. No reservation needed for lunch time movies.
There's a small gallery at the entrance of the building. There doesn't seem to be any permanent exhibition. What you see is mainly work from students. Other than the gallery you won't find anything else to see. This is mainly a learning institution. They will let you walk around and admire the architecture. If I were you I would skip this stop. Instead look at the other attractions in the park like The Tea Ware Museum, the Aviary or the Greenhouse.
