  • Love this place. A great revitalization project in Hong Kong. Love that it keeps the structures, the prison, the cells, barracks, and have clear descriptions of each part of the museum. Strongly recommend joining the free tours as well to learn more about the history. Great restaurants and bars to hang out too.
  • An amazing transformation of a historical building cluster into a vibrant hub of history, culture, and art, Tai Kwun allows you to explore colonial era policing and correctional service through the buuldings, while also getting to experience contemporary arts and fine dining within. Enjoyed the afternoon walking around the exhibits, and came back later that night for some nice Chinese tea too. Highly recommended for tourists and locals alike!
