An interesting glimpse into the late 19th century, complete with artefacts, including a playable musical instrument! It was deserted when we visited which made for good photos. Very much worth a visit.

A good glimpse into village life in Hong Kong from the late 19th century to the early 70's. Its really easy to get here via the MTR, and post-visit, the surrounding environs offers all the conveniences without the maddening crowds of downtown Hong Kong.

Informative and well-kept. Although small, it gave an excellent idea of farming life in a walled village in the 18th century to the 1970s. Pleasant park setting in the midst of Tsuen Wan. Only a short stroll from Tsuen Wan MTR and the Galleria mall....More

This place is a beautiful architectural contrast to the HK Skyscrapers and modern life. This place is easy to reach via MTR. Worth a visit and it is free.
