Tai Kwun is a good place for everyone, no matter with children, for couples or even old people.
We made the reservation online on the same day. The process was very easy. I guess many people went there when it was first opened so now...More
After living in Hong Kong all these years, we were proud and incredibly pleased to finally see that the government converted this lovely old police station into a historical retrospective of life in Hong Kong.

Hong Kong's former prison and police station is now a revitalised complex with exhibitions and restaurants. The Tai Kwun offers a glimpse into early colonial history an the life of the inmates. Beware of the crowd of tourists.

Tai Kwun opened to the public in mid-2018 and has quickly become one the major (and best) new HK attractions. This used to be the old police headquarters and the old remand prison, which to my amazement I learned was functional until 2006 for individuals...More
It struck me that two of Hong Kong's best destinations are remodeled buildings linked to the Police department. PMQ and Tai Kwun, both in different ways a transformation of government buildings into a place filled with restaurants, art, architecture and visitable shops.
It’s a first one in HK. My kids were fascinated about what the bad guys do once they are locked in the prison. It’s well illustrated and to have a bit more insight into this topic. There were great and free performances when we visited.
The old Victorian prison and later additions has been made into a museum, art gallery and eating space.
Beautifully executed, you can easily spend a few hours visiting the complex.
They need to have some video films running to explain the complex evolvement.
When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The area widely known as Central is the major financial hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open late into the night and there just happens to be a street party every weekend. Although everything seems to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of
quiet, hidden gems. Nestled between office towers are wet markets and some of the city’s oldest restaurants dating back to the 1960s. Feeling a bit overwhelmed? Retreat from the crowds by exploring beautifully restored historical buildings and even a green oasis of botanical gardens.
