Lovely building. Interesting and informative displays - lots of information (possibly a bit too much!)
This museum is dedicated to Dr. Sun Yat Sen, with three floors of galleries featuring his life, efforts at overthrowing the Qing Dynasty and time spent in Hong Kong. Dr. Sun Yat-sen is considered the founder of the Republic of China and as such is an important historic figure in this part of the world. For those interested in Dr. Sun Yat-sen or even the history of China during the last decades of the Qing Dynasty, you will enjoy this museum found on Castle Road just off of Caine Road in the Mid-levels area of HK Island. Also of interest is the Kom Tong Hall, a recognized cultural heritage building in Hong Kong, which houses this museum. This is a lovely building which has been well maintained through the years. It was purchased and converted into the Dr. Sun Yat-sen museum in 2006. There is a lovely staircase inside and there are nice rooms which serve as galleries for the life and works of Dr. Sun Yat-sen. You can just imagine what it would have been like to walk the floors of this building almost a hundred years ago when it was originally constructed. For those not so interested in subject matter of this museum, you will at least appreciate the Kom Tong Hall building. Overall, this is not one of the best museums in Hong Kong but its a good specialty museum for those interested in the historic figure of Dr. Sun Yat-sen and those interested in seeing one of our heritage buildings. Entrance fee is HK$10, same as that of most Hong Kong museums.
Nice historical building and know Dr Sun Yat-sen much about how he went through the road of revolution.
Kind of a snooze to be honest with you. There’s one of these in every major city in China and Taiwan. There’s even one in Chicago for crying out loud. If you’ve seen one, you’ve honestly seen them all.
Mixed experience, it was not much information that you can get compares to the internet search. The building itself is worth more that the anything else. 5 star to the building, two star to the museum.
Spent a morning here learning about his connection with HK. Interesting to note that many of his ideas and revolutionary activities were conceived on the island. This classical building is worth exploring for its architecture alone. Do this museum and then check out the Mid-Levels to complete your visit
It's free of charge for Wed. We are so lucky & grateful for it. Very neat. Frendly environment.
In the middle of hong kong, this place is a serene abode of peace.. You will feel you are in a county, in some remote calm place. must visit. soul refreshing
The Dr. Sun Yat-sen Museum is located in the middle of the mid-levels residential area. The building is over 100 year old but very well kept. It is a nice place to visit and it is free admission so don't expect to see too much.
