Objective Supported by the Urban Renewal Fund, the Museum launched this project to promote medical heritage preservation and district revitalization. This 18-months project includes cultural tours, drama plays and public talks. A thematic carnival will be held in 2019 as a finale.

From September 2017 onwards the Museum has developed three new trails for the public: including the Medical cultural walk, Museum Arts runner and an interior Edwardian architectural style tour on the Museum architecture. Participants took a journey back in time on the history of Central and Sheung Wan; navigating a journey of historic Chinese and Western architecture.

We had also invited experts from different sectors to present interesting topic on medical history and knowledge, architectural features and heritage conservation like “Edwardian Architecture”, “Creative Arts in Mental Health”, “Chinese Roofs of Vernacular Architectures in Hong Kong”, “Hakka Mud Brick Architectural Features and Demonstration” and “3D Printing in Medicine”. We hope to promote health through these programmes while participants learnt about the related knowledge and appreciate Hong Kong’s built heritage more.

In coming few months the Museum is presenting the premiere arts x medicine drama education program to 15 primary schools. The programme is in collaboration the Hong Kong Repertory Theatre (HKREP) with an aim to enhance learning interests in arts and medicine through experiencing drama plays. We look forward to your participation on these drama plays and to share interactive lessons on Hong Kong’s medical history.
