The area
Neighbourhood: Sheung Wan
Unlike most of Hong Kong’s other popular districts, Sheung Wan welcomes wanderers with an easy-going, relaxed atmosphere. Art galleries are plentiful and boutique cafés are tucked away in every side street in the sub district known as “PoHo.” Browse through the vintage clothing and handmade leather goods stores – it’s no surprise fashionistas flock to this area. History enthusiasts will be rewarded with sites of beautiful architecture, reflecting Sheung Wan’s past as one of the earliest settlements by British forces. As night falls, the entertainment scene reveals itself to be just as laid back with its private kitchens, speakeasies and underground bars dotted throughout the area. When in Sheung Wan, everyday feels like the weekend.
How to get there
  • Sheung Wan • 4 min walk
  • Sai Ying Pun • 9 min walk

I have always joined the talks at Liangyi and it’s the first time that I actually visit the museum. Amazed by the large variety of collections they have and so happy to be able to actually touch the antiquities. Great tour guide as well!

We were so glad we made the effort to get to this museum. The exhibition and objects were exquisite and so well presented, and the guide was wonderful, with thorough knowledge of the history and artistic techniques. Highly recommended.

We were enchanted by this museum and the guide of our private visit. You can actually touch the objects which is exceptional.

I have wanted to visit this private museum for a long while and I finally did. The exhibits are very interesting. They also have a series of talks of various subject. This time is about Stradivari violins. There was a mini quartet concert which was performed with a Stradivari violin.

For those who enjoy the antique Ming furniture should check it out.

Visiting here may not be as easy as some other places (booking in advanced is necessary and it costs HK$200 per person) but it is well worth it for an hour long private tour. The current exhibition is about writing culture throughout Chinese and Japanese history and tobacco culture in Japan and in the early twentieth century West. Granted, these do not sound like the most fascinating subjects but the knowledge, approachability and enthusiasm of my guide made it a wonderful way to spend an hour. Even without that, the quality and variety of the artefacts is very impressive as is. Can’t wait for their next show in September, which I definitely plan to visit!

This privately own museum is lovely to visit. When we visited it had smoking pipes from Japan and China as well as other objects from these two cultures. A reservation is required and a small entrance fee which includes a guide for only six people at a time. It is totally unexpected and very well displayed.

Stumbled upon this private museum while walking on Hollywood Road and saw their outside poster on the current exhibit - furniture, sliver, etc. I stood at the door and was buzzed in. Although viewings are by appointment only, i was able to join a tour starting in 15 minutes. The 3 of us spent an hour or so with Stephanie ( our tour guide ) seeing an amazing collection of Chinese furniture, silver from around the world and compacts and other items from high-end makers such as Tiffany & Van Clef & Arpel. What a treat! It was a little pricey -- don't recall the exact cost (several hundred HK dollars) but I was on vacation. There are 3 floors of exhibit space and it is all beautifully lit and laid out.

My favorite part about the Liang Yi Museum was the fact that I could interact with most of the exhibits... sit in the chairs, open drawers, touch the rich textures of the wood carvings and precious stone inlays. And I didn't know this going in!

I've never been on a personalized docent tour of anything before. Lauren was very knowledgeable and personable. I think having the small staff that works diligently to set up the exhibits keeps them close to the artwork and adds a personal touch. Lauren was able to answer pretty much all of my questions... even the random and obscure. I didn't feel rushed or pressured to "move along" but really got to soak everything in.

My favorite (though a bit daunting) part was to identify my favorite piece and have my picture taken with it for the social media site. It was so difficult to choose! Everything was so beautiful.

It is a beautiful set-up in a great location not far from the heart of Soho district. Since exhibits rotate out, I will make sure to return on my next visit to Hong Kong!

Cabinets of Curiosities were de rigueur in the 17th and 18th centuries. Keeping the showing of intellect and implied travel private made for exclusivity. Liang Yi is a 21st century Cabinet of Curiosities - a private museum owned and run my a dedicated collector, but one who chooses to open the doors to whoever is interested.
A visit to Liang Yi rarely disappoints - well-situated on the antique and art street of Hong Kong, Hollywood Road, and next to burgeoning SoHo.

The main luxury is being shown around a collection by its curator. I don't think I've ever had that before. Don't be put off by any experiences of ill-informed guides with half-learnt scripts and the appointment system here doesn't seem to be a way of excluding people. It's easy to do and you'll be shown around by someone who can explain the motifs, the materials and how different items are related; and help you work out why you like a particular object. It's a model museum: an immaculate building with every item comprehensively labelled - in English - and perfectly lit.

The current exhibition of modern silver works has great representation by female silversmiths - it seemed like more than half - and made me think how many exhibitions I'd been to where no women had been named. Items that stuck in my mind were a candelabra that reminded me of Flash Gordon's spaceship and a silver vase shaped as if it were moulded from clay.
