Interesting free museum housed in a well-preserved large Western style mansion - pretty rare in Hong Kong. Informative exhibits on Dr Sun Yat Sen and in particular his relationship with Hong Kong (he was introduced to liberal Western values while studying in Hong Kong); though the rooms are only large enough for small scale exhibitions. There were actually more visitors... More

There are many good reasons to visit the Sun Yat Sun Museum in Mid Levels, Hong Kong. The walk up to the museum is both invigorating (an easy taxi ride is an alternative) and allows the visitor to see much of the life and culture of the residents; the building in which the museum is housed is a wonderfully renovated...

The museum has well-written explanations that explain the object or artifact at hand and provide helpful context. I'm a history teacher and think this is a key responsibility of museums, yet not all do this well. This museum would be enjoyable and worthwhile for someone with no knowledge of this part of Chinese history as well as visitors who know... More

If you are a fan of Dr Sun Yat Sen or want to know more about him and his achievements, then this place will not disappoint you. Unlike the one in Shanghai, where his old residence was made into a museum, this museum was initially an old residence of a wealthy local businessman. It is a place built on a... More

I visited this museum during a business trip. You can reach it by taking the mid-level escalators. Dr. Sun Yatsen was a huge figure in Chinese history and this museum does a good job of covering his life. I have also visited museums devoted to Dr. Sun Yatsen in Guangzhou and Nanjing. I think it is a very interesting place... More

It's always worth getting a balanced view of history, and this gives an interesting balance to what you might see on mainland China. It's free and easily accessible. Worth a visit

This free museum is dedicated to Sun Yat Sen and his role in transforming China in the early 20th century. It is not the most comprehensive museum I've been to, but I don't think I've ever been to another museum dedicated to only a single person before, so maybe I can't compare... For those interested in history, the exhibits offer... More

When we were at the top of the mid levels escalators, we wandered around and came across the Dr Sun museum. In a grand building, lots of historic photos, and interesting videos. There was a children's video which I enjoyed watching as a simple introduction to the life of Dr Sun.Very peaceful surroundings. If you are interested in history it... More

Today is 10/10-- The Double Ten as we Chinese are fond of recollecting this fateful date. 105 years ago, Chinese Revolutionaries under Dr. Sun Yat Sen started the Uprising that finished off the Ching Dynasty. The visit to the Museum is a must for locals and Chinese visitors. There were twelve Nationalst flags permanently displayed at the entrance to the... More

The museum is tucked away about Hollywood Road in the midlevels. I hoped to learn a lot from it as I don't know much about that period of Chinese History and only had a rough idea of Sun Yat Sen's role in it. However, it is strangely curated with confusing gaps along the timeline. A lot of the photographs were... More
