We visited the museum and it was fine. A nice little museum with plenty of little historcal facts that one would not have picked up otherwise. We got to watch a video of how to brew and serve tea properly. And were really looking forward...More

This is not a huge museum but definitely worth going if you are interested about Chinese tea ware. You can expect some simple presentation with detailed explanation. Clean and tidy environment for you to enjoy the environment and relax a while.

I like tea and I like museums but this museum just didn't cut if for me. It is very unimpressive - different displays set in different rooms. Very underwhelming. But it is air-conditioned so if you want to get out of the heat while visiting...More

This small museum is in a beautiful building in Hong Kong Park. It’s well put together and very informative. There is good detail about tea history, tea drinking and preparation and there is a children’s Playroom. Takes about 45 minutes to check out exhibits. A...More

A great place to discover the history of tea and tea related ceramics. Recommended for foreigners as the museum provide a great deal of English language interpretation board.

This small museum is certainly worth a visit if you happen to visit Hong Kong Park where it is located. Everything is in in both Chinese and English, and there is a nice overview of how Chinese prepare and drink tea over the centuries. Do...More

It may be me, because the reviews are so good - but because of the reviews, I went here during a very short stopover in HK, and I shouldn't have, as it was wasted time. Nice small Colonial house, not especially noteworthy, and then a...More

Some great pieces on display in an equally impressive house. There is lots of history to this house. The first headquarters of the Commander of British forces in Hong Kong.

Central
When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies
with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The
