Sam Tung Uk Museum

Museum in Tsuen Wan

This well-tended museum aims to portray rural life as it was lived in this late-18th-century Hakka walled village, the former residents of which (the Chan clan) were resettled in 1980. Within the complex a dozen three-beamed houses contain traditional Hakka furnishings, kitchenware, wedding items and agricultural implements, most of which came from two 17th-century Hakka villages in Guǎngdōng province. Behind the restored halls is the old village school, with interactive displays and videos on Hakka women, traditional crafts and food.
