The Hong Kong Heritage Discovery Centre

The Hong Kong Heritage Discovery Centre stands on the historic Blocks S61 and S62 of the former Whitfield Barracks at Kowloon Park. The two blocks were built approximately in 1910. They were used by the Hong Kong Museum of History as temporary premises from 1983 to 1998, until the new museum complex was built in Tsim Sha Tsui East.

The Discovery Centre has been open to public since October 2005 and since then it has become a must-visit in Hong Kong.

The Hong Kong Heritage Discovery Centre is a tribute to sustainable architecture in Hong Kong. It is not just a preservation of two historical blocks, but also serves to educate the people and future generations on the local heritage of Hong Kong. There are permanent exhibitions, thematic exhibitions as well as temporary exhibitions. Other facilities available include educational activities and also a reference library.

Lose yourself and travel in time at the Hong Kong Heritage Discovery Centre.
