T.T. Tsui Gallery of Chinese Art
"Antiquities are history, and provide knowledge that cannot be found in most books. Knowledge of the past serves as a mirror for the present, it has a silent transforming influence, cultivates happiness and contentment, confers enduring benefits and provides endless pleasure." – Interview with Dr. T. T. Tsui in The Mirror (1995)
The T. T. Tsui Gallery of Chinese Art was established in gratitude for Dr. T.T. Tsui for donating over 700 pieces of his private collection to the Hong Kong Heritage Museum. Works of art and antiquities ranging from ceramics, pottery sculptures to bronzes are displayed long-term in the gallery for public appreciation.
In order to bring visitors closer to the exhibits, 30 objects in the gallery are highlighted, focusing on four aspects of life: Food and Drink, Entertainment, Belief, and Animals. Visitors can explore one or more themes and get insights into living in the past.
