We did the Wanchai Gap trail which was steep but scenic. The museum covered the formation of the HK police through to modern times and was very interesting. A lot of history of when we Brits were there, modern criminal activity and everyday police life....More

I took a bus ride to get here. It's a bit off the beaten track. It's a small but interesting museum, particularly if you have a law enforcement background. Only downside was the "no photographs" greeting as we walked in.

Slightly out of the way but well worth spending an hour or two to visit. Great exhibits helped add some colour to my knowledge of the history of HK. Combine it with a trip up the Peak. Take the 15 bus from Exchange Sq up...More
