Latest opening arrangements for AMO venues
     The Antiquities and Monuments Office (AMO) announced today (February 16) that some venues will reopen on February 19.
     Venues to be reopened include the Hong Kong Heritage Discovery Centre in Tsim Sha Tsui and the Ping Shan Tang Clan Gallery cum Heritage Trail Visitors Centre in Yuen Long. The operation of all interactive exhibits and public events except online talks at both venues will remain suspended.
     Users of the venues are required to scan the "LeaveHomeSafe" QR code or register their name, contact number and the time of the visit before entering for necessary contact tracing if a confirmed case is found. Members of the public who opt to register their personal information at the site are reminded to arrive earlier to avoid delaying their visits as longer time is required for such registration.
     The AMO reminds visitors that group gatherings of more than the number of people as stipulated by the law will not be allowed. It will also adopt special measures for the venues, including suspending all interactive exhibits; limiting the number of visitors at each venue; requesting all visitors to undergo temperature checks, use hand sanitiser and put on their own masks before entering the venues; and requiring children aged under 12 to be accompanied by an adult for admission. Cleaning and disinfection measures will be stepped up at the above venues to minimise the risk of infection.
     The other eight venues of the AMO (namely Tai Fu Tai in San Tin; the Fortified Structure in Ha Pak Nai, Yuen Long; the Old House of Wong Uk Village in Sha Tin; the Wun Yiu Exhibition at Sheung Wun Yiu Village in Tai Po; No. 10 San Wai in Wong Chuk Hang; the Fong Yuen Study Hall on Ma Wan; and the Information Centres of Tung Chung Fort on Lantau Island and Tung Lung Fort on Tung Lung Chau in Sai Kung) will continue to be temporarily closed. All educational activities and docent services are suspended until further notice.
     For enquiries, please call the AMO on 2208 4400.
