Dr Sun Yat-sen Museum to hold fun day November 11 and 12
     The Dr Sun Yat-sen Museum (SYSM) will hold a fun day next Saturday and Sunday (November 11 and 12). Offering a wide array of activities, the event aims to enable visitors to learn more about the museum as well as the revolutionary journey of Dr Sun Yat-sen. Members of the public are invited to participate and admission is free. The Dr Sun Yat-sen Museum Fun Day is one of the programmes of Muse Fest HK 2023.

     The fun day will be held from 10am to 7pm. Apart from the copper plate pressing machine for participants to make commemorative coin, a storytelling workshop will be held at the museum to introduce the architectural features of Kom Tong Hall through a picture book, a musical performance and "Experiencing Traditional Chinese Juggling" for participants to learn more about the life and career of Dr Sun through Chinese music, dancing, a harmonica performance, etc, and engage in traditional Chinese juggling.

     During the fun day, the museum will have a quiz game related to the life and career of Dr Sun. Visitors can search for answers in the permanent exhibition "Hong Kong in Dr Sun Yat-sen's Time" and "Dr Sun Yat-sen and Modern China" in exchange for a souvenir.

     The SYSM, located at 7 Castle Road, Mid-Levels, Central, was originally the residence of local businessman Mr Ho Kom-tong. The Kom Tong Hall was built in 1914 and is one of the very few surviving structures in Hong Kong dating back to the early 20th century. The building is crafted with grand interior decorations, colourful stained-glass windows and teak wood staircase railings. This building's facade is surrounded by Greek-style granite columns, and the balcony wall tiles on each floor have their own style. The Kom Tong Hall has been listed as a declared monument in Hong Kong since 2010.
