Hong Kong Museums and Galleries
Liang Yi Museum
181-199 Hollywood Rd., Sheung Wan
Hollywood Road has long had a history rooted in the buying and selling of antiques. Now, one of the city’s greatest resident collectors, Peter Fung, has opened a 20,000-sqaure foot private museum devoted to showcasing his own personal collection, which includes 300-plus pieces from Ming and Quing dynasties and an assortment of jeweled powder boxes from the likes of Van Cleef & Arpels and Cartier. Exhibitions will rotate twice a year, and unlike its traditional counterparts, visitors are encouraged to sit on and touch the items on display.
