Making the revitalised Haw Par Mansion accessible to the general public is our important mission. The private garden and the interpretation areas (reception on LG/F and main hall on G/F in the revitalised Mansion) are now open for visits by individuals or groups under 15 people (with no prior registration required). We also offer free guided tours of the four-storey historic building to schools, non-profit organisations and the general public.
Held every Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday, visitors can gaining access to the restricted upper floors of the revitalised Mansion during this 60-minute guided tour. Our experienced docents will explain the history of the Aw Family, Haw Par Mansion and Tiger Balm Garden, as well as the formation of Haw Par Music. Guided tours are available in both Cantonese and English.
Apart from regular guided tours, Haw Par Music also regularly organizes heritage dialogues, artefact exhibitions, as well as seminars and workshops on topics of heritage conservation, architecture and history. Through these activities, we can engage heritage conservation professionals, cultural leaders as well as the general public in the preservation of our legacy and the intangible knowledge of aesthetics, craftsmanship and culture for our future generations.
Seminars and Workshops on Heritage Conservation, Architecture and History
Our ongoing series of seminars and workshops, themed around the conservation of Haw Par Mansion and its architectural design, is an excellent channel for the public to glimpse into the history and culture of a bygone era in Hong Kong. Through these activities, we offer the public opportunities to understand and experience our scrupulous efforts in restoring the Mansion to its 1930s glory. We also connect with local and international experts to pass on a wealth of knowledge in history, craftsmanship and architectural aesthetics to a wider audience.
