Curious what a rapidly-changing city like Hong Kong looked like a century ago? Or how it might look like in three decades’ time? If there is one constant in the story of Asia’s world city it’s not just change but dynamic change. City Gallery showcases this with interactive exhibitions that bring to life the urban planning proposals and infrastructure projects set by the Hong Kong Government.

The gallery consists of 55 interactive exhibits spread over five floors that take visitors on a journey that examines the uniqueness of Hong Kong and shares the city’s vision for future urban planning and infrastructure.  

On the ground floor you will see comparisons and other metropolises by reviewing parameters such as population densities and skyscrapers. Moving to the first floor, you will hear residents of Hong Kong – from high-school students to business executives – talking about what the city means to them.  On the first floor you can watch an interesting history of urban development in Hong Kong, with audio and visual complemented by a dynamic map.

On the second floor, look out for the fascinating model of Hong Kong’s complex underground infrastructure system and sit inside a simulator to experience driving along the transport networks that Hong Kong has planned for the future.

The third floor provides an immersive audio-visual introduction chronicling the remarkable past development, and planned future of Hong Kong. On the fourth floor is the Resource Centre, which has a collection of books and periodicals related to planning and infrastructure.

Occasionally you will find temporary exhibitions on the ground floor, covering topics that complement the gallery’s permanent exhibits. You can also register at reception for a QR code, which can be used to personalise your experience of the exhibitions, from automating language selection to bookmarking exhibit content to your email address.
