The Wan Chai Livelihood Museum opened in 2007 and is free to visit. It is also known as the Hong Kong House of Stories and the 'Blue House' due to the bright blue colour of the building where the museum is found on Stone Nullah Street.
This is a single room collection of household items from bygone decades, including old records, record player, books, radios, old pictures, toys and other collectable antiques that create a tenable house feel. It is a neat place to stop for a few minutes to see the old items if you are in the area.
The museum is located in a Grade I heritage building, constructed in 1920s as a tenet block. The architecture is that of the 19th century Tong Lau style, which you can't find much of in Hong Kong now. As mentioned, the building is bright blue in colour, which makes it unique and easy to find if you are interested in visiting.
This attraction sits nicely next to another brightly coloured 'yellow' building and just a few minutes walk to the historic Pak Tai Temple, which is worth visiting as well if you find yourself in this area of the city. Additional historic attractions in the area that are worth a quick look include the Wan Chai markets around Cross Street, the Old Wan Chai Post Office and Hung Shing Temple.
