Heritage Fiesta 2017 to be launched in October
Heritage Fiesta 2017 will be held from October 1 to November 30, under which 15 historic buildings related to Hong Kong’s law and order will be open to the public during specific opening hours.
"The event is a great opportunity for the public to appreciate these well-preserved historic buildings that have played a role in Hong Kong’s law and order, and allow the public to learn about their histories and architectural styles," a spokesman for the Commissioner for Heritage's Office of the Development Bureau said today (September 17).
Admission to all participating historic buildings will be free of charge. Free guided tours will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis. Visitors will also be able to collect special stamps at the participating historic buildings during their journeys of heritage exploration at specific opening hours.
A pamphlet on Heritage Fiesta 2017 will be available at the featured historic buildings during the event period. It can also be obtained from the Hong Kong Museum of History, the Hong Kong Heritage Discovery Centre, the Hong Kong Science Museum and Hong Kong Space Museum in Tsim Sha Tsui, the Hong Kong Heritage Museum in Sha Tin, the Dr Sun Yat-sen Museum in Mid-Levels, the Flagstaff House Museum of Tea Ware in Central, the Museum of Coastal Defence in Shau Kei Wan, temples under the Tung Wah Group of Hospitals, visitor centres of the Hong Kong Tourism Board in Tsim Sha Tsui and at the Peak, as well as at the Hong Kong International Airport at Chek Lap Kok.
