7 Reasons to X Fall for Museum: HK Museum of Art 香港美術館

I make it a point to

visit at least one museum for

every city I drop by because..

 

(i) museum usually has great architecture

(ii)  it’s usually quiet

somewhere to hang out

even if you’re not at all

interested in whatever exhibits

(3) what’s more with this particular museum

offering the view of the

world-famous skylines of Victorian Harbour

(4) coming back to the main topic

where were we again?

oh ya in a museum

Hong Kong Museum of Art, right?

I always feel at peace in a museum

the feeling of traveling in between

contemporary and history

forget about the crowds out there

forget about the heat of the scorching sun

(5) it offers a great arrays of Chinese arts

very well segmented too,

according to catalog cards collected:

The Beauty of Materials

The Beauty of Delicacy

The Beauty of Hues

The Beauty of Craftsmanship

The Beauty of Painting

The Beauty of Form

(7) Museum souvenir shop is

an awesome place to shop!

I bought these pretty coasters 

100 HKD each

Porcelain coaster with hand-painting

 

the painting which was KIV-ed

yet did not successfully perform

the purchase due to

weight and fragility concern
