  • This museum is amazing. The history is displayed well. There are true artifacts and original pictures. The staff was very kind. The layout is well done. And traveling from the USA, it explained things...  more »
  • Not really a must-have, this tiny Museum is worth its old-fashioned charm and historical collections about medicine in Hong Kong, mainly in its western character. Nice visit.

  • Interesting place but it seems like their main. Premiss was to show case the plague that occured. It is a good place if you want to learn about that but in general there is not a lot of information about the history of Hong Kong medical system. They do have some very cool display and the building it self is quite unique for the area. Recommend checking it out if you have time.
  • Pretty interesting museum. Well kept, friendly staff. Opening hours differ to what google states (see pic)
