Walk through the 11 exhibition galleries, learning the history of medicine and medical practice in the city along with information regarding health and diseases, and contemporary issues of the medical world.

  • We finished our Hollywood rd walk with Cat Street which had no interest and this little museum. You won't only make the trip to this place, but you'll spend a good half hour on this pleasant tour. In addition, this museum is really located between towers and near the Blake Garden with its particular tree and for me, the start of the street art route.

  • Interesting place but it seems like their main. Premiss was to show case the plague that occured. It is a good place if you want to learn about that but in general there is not a lot of information about the history of Hong Kong medical system. They do have some very cool display and the building it self is quite unique for the area. Recommend checking it out if you have time.
