  • The building was built in 1906. It was designed as the Bacteriological Institute, and after the Second World War it was renamed the Pathological Institute.

  • A very historical and beautiful heritage building constructed in 1906. The museum offers many exhibitions related to human biology, history about the Plague in 1894, the history and achievement of the former Pathological Institute, and display of a number of medical apparatus and Chinese medicine herbs. They are very informative and academic. However, to my disappointment, the exhibits I would like to see were not on display. There are many items which could not be shown either because the space is insufficient. This is my first time to this place. I wish the balcony on the second floor could be open to the public in the future.
  • Hong Kong Museum of Medical Science is a interesting museum which give you a brief information about the disease. The entrance fee of the museum for adult is $20. Not much interactive exhibition in this museum, kids maybe bored. And the museum is not that big and it only take you about 2hrs to finish. And don't forget there is a basement to visit. The building of this museum looks nice
