Law Uk is a former Hakka village house in Chai Wan, Hong Kong. Named after the surname of the family who lived in the house, it was built in the mid-18th century during the Qing Dynasty, about 90 years before the British took possession of Hong Kong Island. It was rediscovered in the 1970s and is a declared monument of Hong Kong. After being restored, the house was turned into the Law Uk Folk Museum, which serves as a branch of the Hong Kong Museum of History. It is the only example of Hakka architecture left in the area.

Nice little museum located in Chai Wan. Law Uk was a typical Hakka-style house in the Law Uk Village that was built at the beginning of the 18th century by the Law family. During the 1950s, Chai Wan began to develop and Law Uk Village was torn down, leaving just one house behind. In 1989, the Hong Kong Government took possession of the house and renamed it Law Uk Folk Museum. The house contains a large living room in the center; on the right and left are rooms and mezzanines. In front of the living room are two small rooms used as the kitchen and a storage room. Outside, there is an empty space used as a thrashing ground. Inside, It was decorated with traditional Hakka furniture and other household items.
