Sitting proudly on the Tsim Sha Tsui waterfront, the Hong Kong Museum of Art is dedicated to promoting local art while also shedding light on China’s long cultural legacy. The Hong Kong Museum of Art underwent a major renovation and reopened in November 2019 with a new annex block and an expanded programme. Spread across 10,000 square metres, the museum has a vast collection of over 17,000 artefacts including Chinese antiquities dating back to the Neolithic period and works by seminal artists such as Wu Guanzhong, who was widely regarded as the father of modern Chinese painting. The museum is also known for its work in charting the development of Hong Kong’s art scene, which, although still relatively young, has already proven to be a force to be reckoned with.
