In the early 20th century, this was the Tai Po Market Railway Station building. Now, the 70,000sqft space is the Hong Kong Railway Museum, an open-air museum dedicated to Hong Kong’s railway history. Inside, the museum features a permanent exhibition of objects such as photographs, old tracks and track samples, and even a full-size model of an electric train compartment. Explore the different coaches to see a true-to-life history of the evolution of the Hong Kong railway coach, from when the station was first established, all the way through the 1970s. Check out the building, too. A declared national monument, it’s built in traditional Chinese fashion and features a quirky pitched roof. Entry is free.
