Tucked high on a hill near Wanchai Gap, lives a small but oh-so-interesting museum dedicated to the history of one of the oldest, yet modern police forces in the world! The Hong Kong Police Museum makes for an outing of adventure, history, and incredible stories from Tiger tales to the Opium wars.
After climbing the stairs to this cannon-surrounded building, you will find a museum divided into four galleries featuring police uniforms complete with guns and knives, real bomb detectors, triad robes, pipes from days of the past and so much more. Learn about Kowloon Walled City and view the famous head of the Sheung Shui tiger caught in the New Territories in 1915.
Editor’s Note: The Hong Kong Police Museum is temporarily closed for renovation until March 2022.
A history of the good, the bad, and the ugly will give you more appreciation for those who protect us and how safe Hong Kong is today.
History mavens, kids into tales of glory, and anyone looking for a fun outing on the island.
Directly below the museum, you will find two amazing playgrounds for littlies (Coombe Road Playground and Wanchai Gap Playground & Park).
