Displays at Hong Kong International Airport
Hong Kong is richly imbued with a unique history and culture, and it is also a modern metropolis with a state-of-the-art airport. Over 100,000 passengers flow through Hong Kong International Airport every day, making it an ideal platform for introducing the territory's history, art and cultural heritage to local and overseas visitors. With this in mind, the Leisure and Cultural Services Department has arranged a series of exhibitions at the airport, the latest two in which have been organised by the Museum of History to present the cultural traditions and history of Hong Kong.
Bits of Old Hong Kong in the "Glimpses of Hong Kong" exhibition series
This exhibition marks the premiere of the exhibition series "Glimpses of Hong Kong" presented by Airport Authority Hong Kong. With historical photos selected from the collections of the Museum of History and covering the themes of daily life, commerce, transport and fashion, it traces urban developments and the transformation of social life in the territory and gives visitors an insight into how elements of Chinese and Western culture have converged in the cultural melting pot that is Hong Kong.
