About the museum

Established in 1962, the Hong Kong Museum of Art was first housed in the City Hall, moving to its present purpose-built premises in Tsim Sha Tsui in 1991. The museum also incorporates the Flagstaff House Museum of Tea Ware, located in Hong Kong Park.

It is the mission of the Hong Kong Museum of Art to preserve the cultural heritage of China and promote Hong Kong art. The museum holds a notable collection in excess of 16,000 art objects, including Chinese painting and calligraphy, Chinese antiquities and China trade art as well as works by Hong Kong artists. As a platform for international artistic exchange, the museum also presents a great variety of thematic exhibitions drawn from major overseas museums and institutions.

To tie in with a new phase of its development, the museum has been closed since August 2015 for a major renovation and expansion project. The expansion will provide a new annex block with a double-height gallery of 9 meters to accommodate monumental contemporary artworks. Two other high-ceiling galleries will be provided on the extended roof floor of the building, increasing the total exhibition area from about 7,000 m² to around 10,000 m².

The Hong Kong Museum of Art featuring a brand new look will re-open in 2019, proffering high-quality programmes and exhibitions to the public. Promoting art among the general public being one of the museum’s main objectives, there will be a continuation of a wide range of educational programmes to enhance visitors’ understanding and interest in artistic creation.
