Experience Hong Kong in a 3D museum

Hong Kong is many things to many people but starting July, people will experience it differently, or more precisely, in 3D.

Hong Kong’s first 3D museum will feature its iconic buildings, streets and cityscape, according to its Facebook page.

More than 70 art pieces and 3D drawings will be displayed in a 10,000 square foot exhibition center on the first floor of Hilton Plaza in East Tsim Sha Tsui.

The exhibit will be in fives zones — Modern Hong Kong, Hong Kong Memories, Chinese Culture, Love Journey and Imaginary Wonderland. It will open in early July.

Admission prices are HK$149 (US$19.22) for adults and HK$100 for children.

The museum borrows from popular 3D art centers in Korea, Apple Daily reported Friday, citing the museum’s chief operating officer, Law Man-hing.

It will fuse local with surreal elements, so that tourists and residents alike can experience a different Hong Kong, Law said.

Visitors can also reach back to old Hong Kong in 3D art pieces such as those depicting Queen’s Pier.
