Old Pathological Institute
(Hong Kong Museum of Medical Sciences)

2 Caine Lane

Constructed in 1905, the Pathological Institute (originally known as the Bacteriological Institute) was the first purpose-built public health and medical laboratory in Hong Kong. After the institute was relocated to a new site in 1960, the old building continued to be used for vaccine production until the 1970s, when it was taken over by the Department of Health as a medical store. It was declared a monument in 1990 and converted into the Hong Kong Museum of Medical Sciences in 1995.

Opening Hours:
Tuesday to Saturday: 10am to 5pm
