Our building

The Hong Kong Public Records Building at 13 Tsui Ping Road, Kwun Tong, Kowloon was opened in 1997 as the first purpose-built archival facility in Hong Kong. It is constructed and equipped to meet international standards for the preservation of records that hold archival value. Our welcoming public areas include an exhibition hall, a search room equipped with computers for access to the extensive archival collection, etc. We hold the memory of Hong Kong - come visit and remember!
