  • As the founding father of China, i.e. the feeling of the modern Hong Kong mansion of the Shenwon Memorial Museum throughout the Chinese culture, the exhibition sits on every floor and is well maintained. It is operated free of charge in the country.

  • The museum's location is a little out of the way. We walked about 20minutes from Central MTR. The slopes and stairs along were a great exercise. Luckily we went in the morning. I suggest taking a taxi...  more »

  • Brilliant free museum in a beautiful historical building once lived in by the storied Ho-Tung family. (It was later used as a Mormon church, as evidenced by the baptismal font and vault still present on the ground floor). The mansion was built in 1914 in a mixed British-Chinese colonial style. The permanent exhibition on Dr. Sun Yat-sen covers a few floors and gives a thorough look at the founding father of modern China and perhaps one of the most interesting figures to ever live. While not the focus of the exhibition, it also sheds light on Hong Kong's historical position as a political safe haven for great Asian revolutionaries and thinkers.
  • Had my fun time. Was really great service and educating
