Take in some culture with a trip or three to a museum this weekend as a number of them will be opened to the public for free in celebration of International Museum Day.
On May 18-19, Hongkongers can enjoy free entry to the city’s most popular museums including the Hong Kong Museum of History, Hong Kong Heritage Museum, Hong Kong Science Museum and Hong Kong Space Museum, as well as other museums operated outside of the Leisure and Cultural Services Department like Hong Kong Maritime Museum, University Museum and Art Gallery and Asia Society.
There’s going to be a boatload of corresponding special activities and talks throughout the weekend. For example, Hong Kong Maritime Museum will be offering giveaways at the gift shops and live music at the adjacent Café 8.
It’s a great opportunity to learn more about the incredibly rich history and cultural legacies of our SAR and expand your horizon on topics ranging from astronomy to the development of Hong Kong railways.
