The Museum of History is located near the Museum of Science though the Museum of History opens at an earlier time (around 10AM) while the Museum of Science opens a bit later during weekdays (around 1PM).
The Hong Kong Story provides a fun and informative tour of the history of HK, starting from the geologic processes that shaped the HK islands up to modern times. Interactive videos and films are available throughout the exhibit. English or Japanese speakers can avail the audio guide for just 10HKD though most of the panels and films do have English translations.
I thoroughly enjoyed the presentation of artifacts from archaeological researches throughout the island. I also like the sense of continuity of the museum, giving you a feel that you are travelling through time. I spent more than 3 hours in this museum and I honestly didn't expect it to be that fun and informative.
Tip: Best day to visit is Wednesday since admission is free.
