Law Uk Folk Museum
(temporarily closed from 29 January 2020)

To tie in with the response level under the "Preparedness and Response Plan for Novel Infectious Disease of Public Health Significance" being raised to Emergency Response Level and avoid people from gathering, all LCSD museums and cultural venues continue to be temporarily closed until 2 March 2020 (Monday). During the period, programmes held at these venues will also be cancelled. The department will monitor the situation closely and review the arrangements in a timely manner.

Law Uk Folk Museum is only a 5 minutes' walk from the Chai Wan MTR Station. The house museum, Law Uk ("Law's House"), is named after its original owner, a Hakka family whose Chinese surname is transliterated as "Law". Today, this 18th-century Hakka village house - the only example of its kind in Chai Wan - is a declared historical building.

Address : 14 Kut Shing Street, Chai Wan, Hong Kong
