24 Historic Buildings Open Their Doors to the Public
Why We Recommend it
This is a unique opportunity to take a peek inside 24 declared monuments and graded historic buildings that were previously, or are still, used as living quarters.
The Heritage Fiesta is an annual happening that offers the chance to explore Hong Kong’s historic buildings and understand their histories and architectural styles. This year’s line-up of buildings that open their doors to the public are either being used as staff or student quarters, while some have been revitalised into platforms promoting nature and ecology, nurturing arts and creativity, as well as providing social services.
Participating heritage buildings include the Hong Kong Museum of History, the Hong Kong Heritage Discovery Centre, the Hong Kong Science Museum and the Hong Kong Space Museum in Tsim Sha Tsui, the Hong Kong Heritage Museum in Sha Tin, the Ping Shan Tang Clan Gallery cum Heritage Trail Visitors Centre in Yuen Long, the Dr Sun Yat-sen Museum in Mid-Levels, the Flagstaff House Museum of Tea Ware in Central, temples under the Tung Wah Group of Hospitals, visitor centres of the Hong Kong Tourism Board in Tsim Sha Tsui and at the Peak, as well as the Hong Kong International Airport at Chek Lap Kok.
Free guided tours are offered at participating historic buildings during the event period on a first-come, first-served basis. Visitors can also collect special stamps at these historic buildings at the specific opening hours.
