Tucked among the office buildings, apartment complexes, and old factory buildings in Chai Wan is a hidden gem. Named for the Hakka family who lived in the house in the mid-18th century, the Law Uk Folk Museum is a declared historical monument and a rare example of a traditional Hakka village house. In fact, it’s the last remaining piece of Hakka architecture in Chai Wan.
The house was discovered in the 1970s and converted into a museum in 1989. Now, it displays a variety of furniture, household items, and farming tools. The museum is just a few minutes’ walk from the Chai Wan MTR, and admission is free.
