What's New

"Taking Strides in Tai Po – A Journey through the District’s Heritage" Exhibition

Tai Po grew from a spartan village into an important market town and, following rapid development in more recent years, into a sizeable new town. A number of distinctive historic buildings remain in Tai Po District today, while many aspects of the traditional culture and lifestyle of the local population also continue to be practised.

Through the display of more than sixty items of valuable unearthed relics, architectural components and decorative features, artefacts, historical records and photographs, accompanied by video programmes, the exhibition aims to reveal the rich cultural connections and artistic values inherent in Tai Po District’s archaeological remains and historic buildings. Featuring four major themes – Trade and Transport”, “Ancestral Halls and Walled Villages”, “Temples and Communities” and “Administration in the New Territories”, it would provide visitors with a greater insight into and appreciation of the diversity of Hong Kong’s historic buildings as well as the importance of heritage conservation.
