The Hong Kong Museum of Art is a local gem for the public to explore the art and culture. We have a collection comprising more than 16,000 pieces of Chinese calligraphy and paintings, antiquities, Chinese export paintings and contemporary works by local artists. Since our establishment in 1962, we have strived to preserve and promote Chinese culture and Hong Kong art by expanding our global network and by organizing exhibitions and educational activities that received wide acclaim.
The Hong Kong Museum of Art has been closed for expansion and renovation from 2015 to 2019 and we are anticipating the reopening of the Museum in 2019.
During the three-year closure, with the generous support from The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust, we launched a mobile museum to engage schools and communities, and to bring art to every corner of the city.
With the theme of “Hong Kong Sign・Hong Kong Signature”, the mobile museum presented a “word maze” city in which students could discover interesting signs and words that permeate every corner of our city, as well as its cultural link to Chinese calligraphy. With a number of interactive games in the mobile museum, people will discover the uniqueness of Hong Kong's hybrid culture through an exciting interactive experience.
The project has been well-received by both the media and the public. Over three hundred schools were served but still there were many school applications we failed to cater for due to limited quota. Therefore, we now launch the web-based multimedia learning resources through transforming the existing games in the mobile museum into an online version, enabling the mobile museum to continue its reach to more schools and benefit a wider public.
