2 Caine Lane, Hong Kong, China
Inside this Edwardian-style building are 11 galleries that will tour visitors around Hong Kong's medical history, helping them by giving info to gain more understanding topics on health and diseases.
This is a hidden favorite of mine. It is very nicely laid out and has mannequins and displays, etc to illustrate the "story" behind each topic. Western and Chinese medicine share the stage and there is a lot of interesting information on the plague, SARS and other illnesses that have been a big part of Hong Kong's history. Definitely worth a trip.
Went there just to check it out and was very satisfied for $20. Great section about the SARS outbreak in Hong kong. Nice virus models, good section on other topics as well such as childbirth, xray, dentistry and how this has changed over time. If you are interested in the basics of medical biology then you will like this.
