Hong Kong Railway Museum - A good place to take pictures. A train station with full of retro flavor.

With the rapid development of the city, the railways in Hong Kong have also undergone substantial changes, and the old railway station in Tai Po Market, New Territories, was decommissioned as a result. In view of the fact that this railway station has witnessed the development of the Hong Kong Railway, it was preserved and converted into a museum. Now let HongKongFootprint.com take us to look around.

The "Hong Kong Railway Museum" is located in Tai Po Market, New Territories. It is an outdoor museum converted from the "Old Tai Po Market Railway Station". It is also a declared monument in Hong Kong. In the exhibition hall, in addition to introducing the development history of the Hong Kong Railway, there are also a series of historical relics on display, including the platforms of the old railway station, steam locomotives, diesel electric locomotives, manual and motorized construction vehicles and antique carriages, etc. to reshape the trajectory of the old railway.

As for the most eye-catching, in addition to the train station platform with full of traditional Chinese architecture, it should be the diesel electric locomotive with full of retro flavor. The body of this diesel-electric locomotive bears the names of the Governor of Hong Kong, Sir Alexander Grantham and his wife, and is named after "Sir Alexander Grantham".

Although the "Hong Kong Railway Museum" is not very big, there are many places to take pictures, especially in the antique carriages. The antique carriages here can be divided into three types, which represent three different periods. Visitors can board the carriages to visit and take photos, and it is fun.

This museum is also a good place for parents and children with educational significance, because the exhibition hall has a number of physical models and multimedia exhibits, which guide children to understand the history of railways in a lively and interesting way, just like walking into a time tunnel for studying. While allowing children to broaden their knowledge, it can also cultivate the feelings between parents and children.

The museum is open from Monday to Sunday, 10:00 am to 6:00 pm. As for the opening hours on public holidays, it is also from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm.
Another thing to note is that it is closed on Tuesdays, but if that day is a public holiday, it will remain open as usual.
Also, admission to this museum is free. So if you want to see the history of the Hong Kong Railway, but don't want to spend, then come here to see it, it will also be a good choice.

If you want to visit this museum, it is recommended to take the MTR to Tai Wo Station and leave at Exit A. After that, walk along Po Nga Road until you reach Tai Wo Bridge, and then go through Tai Wo Bridge to Pak Shing Street on the other side. When you reach Pak Shing Street, go to the left until you see Yan Hing Street, and then continue to walk along Yan Hing Street, you can come to this museum.
