Specializing in the collection, study and display of tea ware, the branch museum at Flagstaff House features at its core the generous donations of Dr K.S. Lo (1910-1995) , which include many fine examples of the famous Yixing teapot. Built in the 1840s, originally the office and residence of the Commander of the British Forces in Hong Kong, was converted to the Museum in 1984 with a new wing. Alongside its exhibitions, the Museum holds regular demonstrations, tea gatherings and lecture programmes to promote ceramic art and Chinese tea drinking culture.
Since its establishment in 1975, the Hong Kong Museum of History has made strenuous effort in collecting and preserving cultural objects which are closely related to the history of Hong Kong and the South China area. The Museum has a significant collection of historical objects and materials amounting over 90,000 items, divided into four major areas of interest: natural history, archaeology, ethnography and local history.
