I've read about the Hong Police Museum and I've always wanted to go there. However, it's up on the Peak and most people haven't really heard of it. The Hong Kong Police Museum is off Bowen Road. You can get there by bus or you...More

The museum is located on top of a hill and requires a bit of a trek to get there. There's a nice view of some houses and gives a different view of Hong Kong. They have some interesting exhibits (police uniforms, forensic tools, armor, guns...More

We did the Wanchai Gap trail which was steep but scenic. The museum covered the formation of the HK police through to modern times and was very interesting. A lot of history of when we Brits were there, modern criminal activity and everyday police life....More

I took a bus ride to get here. It's a bit off the beaten track. It's a small but interesting museum, particularly if you have a law enforcement background. Only downside was the "no photographs" greeting as we walked in.

Definitely worth a visit if you are a history buff. It's small, so an hour or two will be plenty. I found the sections on the founding of the force most interesting, but there is also plenty on more recent developments.

Some gruesome history is awaiting to be revealed at HK's police museum. It's small but full of interesting stuff including a tiger shot by officers in Fanling at the turn of the last century and lots of details about Triads and their rituals. Well worth...More

Came here on a Friday morning. It's somewhat out of the way, but it is on the way to The Peak. Hours are varied so be sure to check before you go. It is a small museum and can be completed in 20-30 minutes, depending...More
