It was my second time in Hong Kong and I decided to just leave my hotel and walk around the city. I saw the sign for the Hong Kong Museum of History when walking and decided that that sounded interesting to me. Yes, museums may kind of be my thing. So off I wandered until I found the Museum. Located in Tsim Sha Tsui the “Hong Kong Story” exhibit is free to enter.
