About Hong Kong Palace Museum
Located at the western tip of the West Kowloon Cultural District, the Hong Kong Palace Museum is scheduled to open in mid-2022. The Hong Kong Palace Museum 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. Offering a Hong Kong perspective and a global vision, the museum aspires to become one of the world’s leading cultural institutions committed to fostering the understanding and appreciation of Chinese art and culture, while advancing dialogue among world cultures and civilisations. With a new curatorial approach, the museum will present the finest objects from the Palace Museum as well as Chinese and international works of art from other leading global institutions. The museum occupies some 10,000 square metres, with a total floor area of about 30,000 square metres. Nine galleries comprise 7,800 square metres. Visitors will enjoy ample rest areas inside and outside the museum, as well as an auditorium, atriums, educational spaces, gift shops, and dining areas. Rocco Design Architects serves as the museum’s design consultant.
