Established in May 2009, the Hong Kong Museum of Education acquires, conserves, preserves, researches and exhibits materials related to the history, culture and development of education in Hong Kong.
The Museum currently houses a collection of education related items and artefacts of historical value in Hong Kong. These items include teaching tools, school uniforms, textbooks, trophies, certificates, historical documents and photographs. We welcome donations of artefacts of all kinds with historical value, and cultural significance and interest that can bring back the memories of Hong Kong people’s education experiences.
The Museum hosts thematic exhibitions on themes such as the development of teacher training in Hong Kong, the origins and history of local village schools, the evolution of school buildings in Hong Kong and the educational heritage treasures of school-sponsoring bodies. The Museum also hosts special exhibitions and co-organises exhibitions with other museums and organisations in Hong Kong and the region.
