The Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government runs 15 museums and 2 other cultural spaces, each one unique in its focus. Broadly, these museums cover art, history and science. Our vision is to offer inspiring experiences to be enjoyed by all.
Museums collect, conserve and exhibit collections for the purpose of education and providing uplifting and enlightening experiences. We also conduct extensive research to discover a composite picture of our culture, history and heritage. Preserving these endowments represents a vital long-term commitment to current and future generations.
By conserving a cultural legacy that is accessible, we hope to provide a lifelong learning platform for the community to foster their imagination and creativity.
We pursue our vision with professionalism, creativity, passion and integrity. Our core values are openness and people-oriented culture. Apart from having Museum Expert Advisors to render professional advice on collection items, special research projects and programmes, the Museum Advisory Committee has been established to advise LCSD on strategic matters relating to the development of the museums.
Shouldering the mission to promote our cultural heritage, LCSD museums play an essential role in developing Hong Kong into an East-meets-West centre for international cultural exchange.
