Online Exhibition
50 Themes


Hong Kong displays its uniqueness in different eras. Despite changes in lifestyles and urban scenes along with development of the community, economy, technology, culture and construction, the stories left behind are always captivating. To mark our Golden Jubilee (50th Anniversary) this year, an exhibition featuring 50 themes closely related to people’s daily life under the four categories of “Food”, “Land and Housing”, “Transport” and “Recreation” is held, with a selection of relevant exhibits and brief descriptions of their origins and characteristics, to showcase the kaleidoscopic facets of Hong Kong’s society. This exhibition will take you through the historical development of Hong Kong.
