Preserving Hong Kong's Archaeological and Built Heritage Exhibition

 As a well-known financial pivot and commercial centre, Hong Kong is renowned for its economic success over the world. While the city is distinguished for its spectacular skyscrapers, Hong Kong's long history and rich heritage resources are usually overlooked.

We can deduce from archaeological evidences that Hong Kong was inhabited by early settlers at least around 6,000 years ago. Hong Kong had been under British rule for over 150 years until China resumed sovereignty in 1997 and the energetic society evolves and develops amid integrations and challenges brought by the east and the west. It eventually becomes a cosmopolitan city assembling both the eastern and western virtues with a fusion of the new and the old.

This exhibition aims at introducing Hong Kong's rich heritage and its preservation work.
