LCSD to actively echo Night Vibes Hong Kong campaign
     To actively echo the Night Vibes Hong Kong campaign to promote night activities, the Leisure and Cultural Services Department will hold lantern carnivals during the Mid-Autumn Festival period and extend the opening hours of three museums under the department.
​     The Mid-Autumn lantern carnival will be held from tomorrow (September 15) to October 8 at the Hong Kong Cultural Centre Piazza to display the interactive lighting installation "The Moon Machine". The carnival will be extended to Victoria Park, Sha Tin Park and Tuen Mun Park from September 23 to October 2 to display lanterns of different themes. Members of the public can also appreciate a vast range of intangible cultural heritage, watch traditional handicraft demonstrations, try lantern riddles, and enjoy music and dance performances.
​     The Hong Kong Museum of Art (HKMoA), the Hong Kong Science Museum (HKScM) and the Hong Kong Space Museum (HKSpM), starting from September 29 to November 26, will run a trial to extend their opening hours to 10pm on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays. Members of the public are welcome to visit. During the extended openings, the three museums will offer special programmes on Saturday evenings as follows:
​     The HKMoA, in collaboration with the Hong Kong Film Archive, will present "Movie Date at the Museum". Visitors can enjoy a romantic night at the museum by watching classic local romantic movies and exploring the "Love Letters: Everlasting Sentiments from the Xubaizhai Collection" exhibition.
​     The HKScM will hold a "Science Fun Night". Through different booths and games, the public can make interesting crafts or try different science experiments to enjoy science.
​     The HKSpM will turn into a "Starry Wonderland" on those evenings. Participants can enjoy the night sky with astronomical telescopes at the rooftop and enhance their understanding of astronomy through games at the exhibition halls. Additionally, the Space Theatre will feature an extra show during each extended opening night.
​     For details, please visit the websites of the respective museums.
​     Furthermore, to facilitate the Police implementation of the special crowd management measures in Tsim Sha Tsui promenade area for the National Day fireworks display on October 1, both the HKMoA and the HKSpM will close at 6pm on that day.
