Small museum with interesting tidbits about medicine in general and also in Hong Kong, particularly the plague. Information targeted towards people with little to no medical background so is good for all ages. The sections on Chinese medicine, particularly the apothecary type setup in the...More

It's interesting but a little out of the main tourist areas. Lots of old and fascinating medical exhibits. The museum building and the surrounding area is rather historic.

if you choose to walk to the museum, you may very well have to tackle a number of flights of steep stairs! The museum itself is a fine example of a colonial structure. The ground floor devotes a lot of room to an artist's works...More

This place is a little hard to find but is a lovely building set within a small apothecary garden which is itself worth a visit. The entrance fee is relatively expensive for HK. There is a short introductory film (which is not brilliant) and then...More

As a physician and medical technologist with specific experience in microbiology, this was a great stop for me. The museum reviews the bubonic plague outbreak, as well as the SARS outbreak. The surrounding garden is lovely.

It was a nice walk to get to, through the steep side streets and walkways. The museum building is itself beautiful and tucked away from the bustling streets nearby. The exhibits were great and factual but to me, were laid out in a very random...More
