By Jenny Leung 29 May 2019

Event Information

START DATE 18 May 2019
END DATE 09 Sep 2019
1 Man Lam Road, Sha Tin
Sponsored by The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust, this exciting exhibition will feature 100 historical artefacts from the encyclopedic collections of the British Museum. Selected from various geographical areas, these fascinating objects combine to tell the story of human civilisation, from the first human stone tool from Africa, to the Japanese artist Hokusai's famous woodblock print, Under the Wave off Kanagawa. It's a rare chance for visitors to catch a glimpse so many grandiose pieces from around the world – all under one roof!

Senior editor

Born in Hong Kong and raised in the UK, Jenny grew up with the best of both worlds. She loves just about anything to do with music and doesn’t shy away from belting out a tune or two when it comes to karaoke. If she’s not out and about exploring the city and practising her photography skills, she’s probably tucked up in bed with a book or glued to her laptop doing her online shopping.
