Hi, today my class and I went on a field trip, which was to the Hong Kong Museum of History which has a lot of exhibits about old HK. It was very interesting so let me share some of my experiences with you.
First of all, the museum was a really big place. The most interesting topics to me were the exhibits on war, how businesses evolved particularly the restaurants and shops, as well as the information on the wildlife of HK.
The exhibit on wars were about the ones that took place between the Japanese and the Chinese. The pictures showed soldiers carrying rifles with knifes at the tip. I guess this was used to ensure your opponent could be killed by shooting or stabbing. Very violent unfortunately…
I also saw an exhibit about shop houses from the past which sold herbal tea and very weird types of food which I did not recognize. I know it is not but one item looked like Beef Wellington, because it had a beef steak inside and a pastry wrap outside. It looked really tasty.
So this trip to the museum was actually very helpful for our new unit about HK’s Past. I do recommend you to go there if you need information about the city’s history!!!
