Antiquities and Monuments Office

In 1900, a Mr Ho Tung (later Sir Robert) donated $15,000 to the Government to build a school in Kowloon. Known as the Kowloon British School, it officially opened in 1902 and is the oldest surviving school building constructed for foreign residents in Hong Kong. The architecture is typical of many English schools of the Victorian era, with the exception of the wide verandas, high ceilings and pitched roof – modifications made for the local sub-tropical climate. 

The building is a Declared Monument and now houses the Antiquities and Monuments Office.
