The Hong Kong Palace Museum aspires to become one of the world’s leading cultural institutions committed to the study and appreciation of Chinese art and culture, while advancing dialogue among world civilizations through international partnerships. Located at the western tip of the West Kowloon Cultural District, with sweeping views of the city’s iconic Victoria Harbour, the museum is scheduled to open in mid-2022. Embracing new curatorial approaches, the museum will offer a Hong Kong perspective and a global vision, presenting the finest objects from the Palace Museum and other leading cultural institutions around the world. It is a collaborative project between the West Kowloon Cultural District Authority and the Palace Museum. The capital cost of the museum is fully funded by a donation of HK$3.5 billion from The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust.
