Cantonese opera relics form a unique attraction at the museum, and a collection of about 20,000 items has been built up. In 1996, with the support of the Chinese Artists Association of Hong Kong, a campaign to collect Cantonese opera relics was launched with great success. The museum now houses a wide range of artifacts including costumes, props, scripts, postbills, special issues, photos, musical instruments, records and a variety of documentary materials, which have mainly been donated by enthusiastic citizens, scholars and renowned Cantonese opera artists.
