Latest opening arrangements for AMO venues
Hong Kong Heritage Discovery Centre in Tsim Sha Tsui; Ping Shan Tang Clan Gallery cum Heritage Trail Visitors Centre in Yuen Long; Tai Fu Tai in San Tin, Yuen Long; the Fortified Structure in Ha Pak Nai, Yuen Long; the Old House of Wong Uk Village in Sha Tin; the Wun Yiu Exhibition at Sheung Wun Yiu Village in Tai Po; the Fong Yuen Study Hall on Ma Wan; No. 10 San Wai in Wong Chuk Hang (only opens on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays); the Information Centres of Tung Chung Fort on Lantau Island and Tung Lung Fort on Tung Lung Chau in Sai Kung have been reopened. The operation of all interactive exhibits and docent services at these venues will remain suspended.
The viewing platform of Tung Lung Fort on Tung Lung Chau in Sai Kung is closed until further notice due to the maintenance works in progress.
With effect from 1 November 2021 (Monday), all persons will be required to use the “LeaveHomeSafe” mobile application (the App) to scan the venue QR code before entering the venue, with the exception of specified categories of exempted persons. Persons who are aged below 12 or aged 65 or above, and those with disabilities that render use of the App difficult, will be exempted from the requirement of using the App. However, they are required to complete a record form to register their names, the first four digits or letters of their identification documents, their contact numbers and the date and time of their visits. They are also required to present relevant identification documents for verification at the request of the venue staff during registration. The venue staff will also verify the contact numbers by making phone calls. Exempted persons are reminded to arrive earlier to avoid delaying their visits as longer time is required for such registration and verification.
The Antiquities and Monuments Office (AMO) reminds visitors that group gatherings of more than the number of people as stipulated by the law will not be allowed. It has also adopted special measures for the venues, including suspending all interactive exhibits; limiting the number of visitors at each venue; requesting all visitors to undergo temperature checks, use hand sanitiser and put on their own masks before entering the venues; and requiring children aged under 12 to be accompanied by an adult for admission. Cleaning and disinfection measures have been stepped up at the above venues to minimise the risk of infection.
For enquiries, please call the AMO on 2208 4488.
