Tiananmen Memorial: June 4 Museum

The Memorial

A museum dedicated to the Tiananmen Massacre, the only one of its kind, in Hong Kong. The museum has its own official web site.

The museum is fairly small in size. Most of the exhibits are texts and pictures of the 1989 student movement. There is little actual artifacts from the event available, however.

Visitors pay a nominal fee to enter the museum. Picture-taking is allowed. Miniatural replicas of Goddess of Democracy, as displayed on the bookshelf above, are available for purchase as souvenirs.


Address: Fifth floor, 3 Austin Avenue, Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong SAR.

The museum is housed in a residential-commercial building with no clear sign outside:


The museum was established by the Hong Kong Alliance in Support of Patriotic Democratic Movements in China in 2012. Before moving into this permanent location in 2014, there were two separate temporary locations.
