Hong Kong's history and China's cutural heritage
For a city sometimes thought to be obsessed with making money at the expense of self-enrichment, there are museums aplenty. The large downtown ones have become more cutting-edge and interactive with their displays of late. But those showcasing the best of local and Chinese cultural heritage have no need for bells and whistles, letting the impressive ancient and modern pieces speak for themselves. Small specialist-interest Hong Kong museums include those focusing on coastal defence, the local police force and traditional Chinese medicine.
