Museum festival debuts in Hong Kong

The festival brings together 14 public museums and five related cultural venues, covering history, art, culture, science, astronomy, film, archaeology, built heritage and conservation.

Hong Kong Space Museum

The festival offers more than 70 programs and activities in four main categories, namely Muse Fest Special Activities, the Museum Inside Out Program Series, the Exhibition and Film Show Series and the Educational and Extension Activity Series.

The Museum Inside Out Program Series is the highlight of the festival. The programs enable visitors to gain an in-depth understanding of the varied work of museums. Professional designers of various museums have been invited to join the Meet the Museum Designers event, at which they will share with participants the behind-the-scene stories of producing large-scale exhibitions. They will also tell you what a big difference is made by adding visual design elements to an exhibition.

A Conservation Clinic will be set up in both the Hong Kong Museum of Art and the Hong Kong Museum of History. Specialist conservators will be there to give condition assessments of relics brought by visitors.

Children who love crafts should not miss the Museum HAS Family Workshops on the themes of history, art and science to be held on weekends.

The climax of the festival programs is the Alien Party @ Space Museum, which will be held July 11 at the Hong Kong Space Museum. The party is open to students from Grade 4 to Grade 6. Participants can dress up like an alien for a fun-filled evening exploring extraterrestrial life.
