Hong Kong Museum of Art to extend opening hours
***********************************************


The opening hours of the Hong Kong Museum of Art will be extended to 8pm on Saturdays, a spokesman for the Leisure and Cultural Services Department said today (July 12).

Starting next month, the museum will open from 10am to 6pm from Monday to Wednesday and on Fridays, Sundays and public holidays; and from 10am to 8pm on Saturdays. It will be closed on Thursdays except those that fall on public holidays.

The mission of the Museum of Art is to preserve the cultural heritage of China and promote art with a local focus. Its collections now number in excess of 14,000 items, including Chinese paintings and calligraphy works, antique Chinese treasures, paintings of historical significance and creations by local artists.

Highlights of the museum's collections are on display in the exhibition galleries. To maintain an international character, the museum also presents a variety of exhibitions drawn from local and overseas sources. Currently on is "The World of Etruscans" which runs until September 10.

A wide range of educational programmes are also organised in support of the exhibitions to enhance participants' knowledge of and interest in artistic creation.

The Museum of Art is located at 10 Salisbury Road, Tsim Sha Tsui. For enquiries, call 2721 0116.
