Police Museum

The Hong Kong Police Force has been serving the city since 1844. The Police Museum housed in the former Wan Chai Gap Police Station showcase a collection (some 700 pieces) of Hong Kong Police related exhibits.

The Police Museum, Hong Kong

Its unusual location is perhaps the biggest obstacle for its number of visitors. Visitors are however rewarded with an educational experience and a green scenic view of the Hong Kong Island.


The Police Museum at mid-levels has undergone a major renovation in 2010, giving the exhibition area a modern look. It has five galleries, the Orientation Gallery and the Police Then & Now Gallery were my favourite.

No matter you are a police enthusiasts or a curious tourists, your trip to the Police Museum would be worthwhile. Plan ahead and consider to visit the Peak or the Lover's Rock on the same day.
