The Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) announced today (February 2) that 11 museums and Hong Kong Visual Arts Centre (HKVAC) will be closed on the first and second day of the Lunar New Year (February 9 and 10). The one exception is the Hong Kong Museum of Art where the "Impressionism: Treasures from the National Collection of France" is being staged.

The 11 museums not open to the public on the first and second day of the Lunar New Year are the Hong Kong Museum of History, Hong Kong Heritage Museum, Hong Kong Science Museum, Hong Kong Space Museum, Hong Kong Museum of Coastal Defence, Flagstaff House Museum of Tea Ware, Law Uk Folk Museum, Sheung Yiu Folk Museum, Hong Kong Railway Museum, Sam Tung Uk Museum and Hong Kong Film Archive.

An LCSD spokesman said that on Lunar New Year's Eve (February 8) the Science Museum, Museum of Coastal Defence, Law Uk Folk Museum and Film Archive would close at 5pm while the Museum of Art would remain open until 6pm.

"The Museum of History, Heritage Museum, Space Museum, Flagstaff House Museum of Tea Ware, Sheung Yiu Folk Museum, Railway Museum, Sam Tung Uk Museum as well as the HKVAC will be closed on Lunar New Year's Eve as it will fall on their weekly closing day," he said.

Most of the museums will be open on the third day of the Lunar New Year (February 11), including the Museum of History, Heritage Museum, Science Museum, Space Museum, Museum of Coastal Defence, Museum of Art and Film Archive. However, the Flagstaff House Museum of Tea Ware, Law Uk Folk Museum, Sheung Yu Folk Museum, Railway Museum, Sam Tung Uk Museum and the HKVAC will remain closed.
