Hong Kong Palace Museum Wows with its Design and Displays

The Hong Kong Palace Museum is located at the western tip of the West Kowloon Cultural District and has adopted an innovative approach to sharing artefacts. Spanning over 30,000 square metres with 7,800 square metres of exhibition space, the new museum’s design by local firm Rocco Design Architects takes inspiration from the Forbidden City in Beijing. The Opening Exhibitions are jointly curated by Hong Kong Palace Museum and the Palace Museum. More than 900 pieces of priceless treasure from the Palace Museum will be displayed on rotation, some of them being shown in Hong Kong for the first time. There are also 13 precious pieces on loan from the Louvre Museum in Paris.

In the thematic exhibitions, subjects such as architecture, culture, court life, Chinese art and multimedia installations from Hong Kong artists are covered. The special exhibitions showcase Chinese paintings and calligraphic works from the Palace Museum, along with artworks showing the historical significance of horses in Chinese and world cultures.

The Museum officially opened on 3 July 2022 with free admission every Wednesday until 2 July 2023. Visitors are required to register on the Hong Kong Palace Museum and West Kowloon platforms for free admission.
