Located at the western tip of the West Kowloon Cultural District, the Hong Kong Palace Museum looks out over sweeping views of Hong Kong’s iconic Victoria Harbour. It consists of exhibition space of 7,800 square metres and ample rest areas both inside and outside the museum, as well as an array of amenities, such as an auditorium, atriums, educational spaces, gift shops, and eateries. The museum will also provide barrier-free facilities and nursery rooms.

The Hong Kong Palace Museum aspires to become one of the world’s leading cultural institutions committed to the study and appreciation of Chinese art and culture, while advancing dialogue among world civilizations through international partnerships.

The museum is scheduled to open in mid-2022. Embracing new curatorial approaches, it will offer a Hong Kong perspective and a global vision, presenting the finest objects from the Palace Museum and other leading cultural institutions around the world. Through innovative research and travelling exhibitions, as well as educational, cultural, and professional exchange programmes, the museum will build international partnerships and help position Hong Kong as a global centre for art and culture. It is a collaborative project between the West Kowloon Cultural District Authority and the Palace Museum.

The capital cost of the museum is fully funded by a donation of HK$3.5 billion from The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust and the main contractor of this project is China State Construction Engineering (Hong Kong) Limited.
