The permanent “Hong Kong Story” exhibition at Tsim Sha Tsui’s Museum of History was closed on Monday for an extensive revamp. It is expected to remain closed for over two years.

Opened in 2001, the exhibition occupied over 7,000 square metres – consisting of eight galleries. The displays explored the city’s natural environment and prehistoric history, folk culture and development during the Han to Qing dynasties.
