Leisure plus: Spotlight on favourite museums


Institute members recommend the best museums to visit on a weekend afternoon

Hong Kong Heritage Museum

“If you want to explore the diverse cultures of Hong Kong, I recommend the Hong Kong Heritage Museum. You’ll be able to learn about Hong Kong’s ‘living heritage’ such as its cultural traditions through recordings and videos of everyday life. Don’t forget to spend extra time enjoying the scenery on the banks of Shing Mun River afterwards,” says So.

Madame Tussauds Hong Kong

“I recommend going to Madame Tussauds Hong Kong at The Peak. A fun wax museum for all ages, you get to see and take photos with music icons as well as famous movie and sport stars. If you’re feeling tired, grab a coffee and Hokkaido ice cream while taking photos at the Selfie Gallery,” says Wu.
