Hong Kong Correctional Services Museum Hong Kong Correctional Services Museum Hong Kong Correctional Services Museum

If you’re curious about crime and punishment, or perhaps you just want to scare the kids into behaving themselves, a visit to the Hong Kong Correctional Services Museum affords an intriguing glimpse into prison life. It also traces the transformation of the Hong Kong penal system over 160 years from the original punishment-as-a-deterrent model to the current approach that promotes rehabilitation. 

Located inside the Correctional Services' Staff Training Institute in Stanley, the museum features some 600 artefacts, a mock gallows, two imitation cells and a stylised guard tower perched on top of the building. The 10 galleries present exhibits covering the history and development of the prison system, including punishment and imprisonment, staff uniforms and insignias, the Vietnamese boat people, homemade weapons, and more.
