Museum of Tea Ware is 30 Years Old!
The Museum of Tea Ware inside Hong Kong Park, formerly called Flagstaff House, was the headquarters of the Commander of the British Forces and the Commander's residence until 1978. The historical building was later awarded to the Urban Council for refurbishment as a museum where valuable tea ware donated by Dr K.S. Lo were displayed. On 27 January 1984, the Museum of Tea Ware opened to the public. It has been thirty years since that day. This first thematic museum in Asia that exhibits, collects and studies tea ware and tea culture is an attractive place for the public and overseas visitors to relax in and enjoy tea.
To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Museum of Tea Ware, we have planned a whole year of celebration activities for 2014. The exhibition and programmes held in the past three quarters as well as the launch of the special souvenir collection, including tea caddies, mouse pads, tote bags and magnets have all been well received by the public. In October, the thematic exhibition "From Soya Bean Milk to Pu'er Tea" will be our grand finale. Through our precious collections, the general public will be able to look back on the life of Dr K. S. Lo and his contribution to promoting Chinese tea culture.
Don't miss out on such a great lineup of people and events relating to tea. Join us for the museum's celebration!
"Tea Carnival" was well received by the public. Look! The participants enjoyed the garden party very much.
