Liang Yi Museum

A museum of design, craftsmanship and heritage in the heart of historical Hong Kong, featuring two world-class collections of Chinese and European antiques.

Liang Yi Museum is the four-storey home to one of the world’s largest and best-curated collections of Chinese antique furniture, made of the treasured materials huanghuali and zitan, from the Ming and Qing dynasties. Started in the 1980s with many of the earlier pieces purchased right in Hollywood Road, the collection has grown to over 300 pieces three decades later. Selected pieces have been exhibited in other museums, primarily the National Museum of History in Taiwan. With the opening of the Liang Yi Museum, this magnificent trove of Chinese antique furniture will return home and be shown in rotating exhibitions, all curated to highlight the many facets and delights of this bygone furniture-making tradition.

Open by appointment only.
