Heritage Fiesta 2018 to be launched in June

The Heritage Fiesta 2018 will be held from June 1 to July 31, under which 16 historic buildings that are related to serving the community 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 to serve the community in Hong Kong, and allow the public to understand their histories and architectural styles," a spokesman for the Commissioner for Heritage's Office of the Development Bureau said today (May 18).

Free guided tours will be offered at participating historic buildings during the event period on a first-come, first-served basis. Visitors can also collect special stamps at the participating historic buildings during their journeys of heritage exploration, during specific opening hours.

It can also be obtained from the Hong Kong Museum of History, the Hong Kong Heritage Discovery Centre, the Hong Kong Science Museum and the 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.
