The City Gallery is fully opened to the public from 8 May 2021 free of charge after completion of partial renovation works.
Various exhibits and facilities on G/F, 3/F and 4/F have been replaced with more interactive and fun elements, offering a refreshing “City Gallery Touring Experience” to visitors. The touring experience start with the “Planning Eye” exhibit next to the main entrance on G/F where visitors can grasp the challenges and opportunities faced by Hong Kong in the course of city development as well as our planning vision through the interactive videos shown on the eyeball-shaped LED and 3D model combined with immersive multimedia experience. Visitors can also play with the new “City Impression” and “Great World Cities” interactive exhibits to learn how Hong Kong benchmarks with other cities and the good practices of various cities in achieving sustainable development goals.
New interactive exhibits on 3/F include “Planning Timeline” and “Coastlines & Skylines”. Visitors may enjoy the charms of Victoria Harbour while exploring the tales of Hong Kong and harbour development. Visitors can also choose to sit comfortably in the multi-purpose hall on 3/F and watch videos featuring the essence of Hong Kong’s planning and development trajectory and our future vision; or walk one level up to explore the new “Hong Kong Now and Then” and “Treasure Hunt” exhibits.
To promote inclusive city, the City Gallery has incorporated various inclusive facilities. A Community Lounge is also added to 4/F for visitors to relax cozily, reading our collection on planning and infrastructure development or share with others their views on town planning.
We are now recruiting “Friends of City Gallery”, and participants would be invited to join our special activities in future and receive a souvenir (while stock lasts).
