Very good place to see the historic development of Hong Kong. This place show the urban planning history and milestones of the city state through interactive panels and multimedia shows. This can be visited with children and many activities for kids to learn the evolution of Hong Kong. Free of charge entrance with friendly staff assisted for multiple exhibits in four floors. Second floor was closed for renovation, and highly recommended for anyone who wish to learn about history of Hong Kong.

It used to be pretty cool, but now it's rather empty. Just some interactive maps showing the old shoreline vs the ones nowadays. It's a bit of a walk from everything else, and I would not recommend you going out of the way just to visit this museum

The City Gallery is a multi-floor facility with exhibition space dedicated to the history of city planning and urban development of Hong Kong. Exhibits are educational and interesting.

Presently, there is a much relevant exhibition on the G/F for the proposed New Town of San Tin Technopole which is under consideration for being developed near the mainland border, showing how the township will be designed, laid out and eventually built for a future community in the northern border area of Hong Kong.

I recently visited City Gallery and found it to be an average attraction. The gallery offers a glimpse into the history and development of the city, and it was interesting to learn about some of the key landmarks and events that have shaped it.

However, I didn't find the exhibits to be particularly engaging or interactive. While there were a few multimedia displays, most of the information was presented through static displays and plaques. Additionally, some of the exhibits felt a bit dated and could benefit from an update.

The staff at the gallery were friendly and helpful, but there didn't seem to be many of them around to answer questions or provide additional information.

I would say that City Gallery is worth a visit if you're interested in learning more about the history of the city, but it may not be the most exciting or engaging attraction. The exhibits could benefit from more interactivity and updates, but the friendly staff and informative displays still make it a decent option for a day out.

Fabulous free museum showcasing Hong Kong transport, infrastructure and development. Spent a good 2-3 hours here with my 4 year old who loved the interactive exhibitions, art made of Lego, building blocks and video presentation.

As an urban planner by profession, it was interesting to see how a dense city like Hong Kong deals with land use and development, and to understand the challenges that HK urban planners face. (No doubt there would be huge pressure from the billionaire HK developers! I take my hat off to the urban planners, who must have balls of steel.)

There were many interactive activities, and I did go a bit crazy (and naughty) with the building blocks...

Free entry. Unfortunately, the top two floors were undergoing renovations and closed to the public when I visited.

Very good location and children can have a lot of fun and knowledge about the city development as well as its historical information. The most important, it is free of charge. Beside, when we arrived there, on the 2nd and 3rd floor, you can view the e-formula race inside the building. Great!
