A City of Thousand Faces


This exhibition was officially opened for public use on 19 April 2009. It consists of one Outdoor Display Area and six Exhibition Rooms inside the Former Yamen. It seeks to re-create the old days of the Kowloon Walled City through models, images and sound effects etc.

Outdoor Display Area

Located at the South Gate of the Kowloon Walled City Park, the Outdoor Display Area showcases a shadow wall and a model of the Walled City. The side of the shadow wall facing the South Gate is inscribed with an essay on the Kowloon Walled City Park. On the opposite side, a cross-section of the pre-demolished Walled City is displayed. The bronze model facing the Yamen is a miniature of a building in Walled City before demolition.
