香港医学博物馆

这栋以红砖砌成的英国爱德华式建筑,标志着香港医学发展的重要一步。19世纪末,香港爆发疫症,促使了博物馆的前身:细菌学检验所的诞生。细菌学检验所于1906年启用,当时是香港第一所专为公共卫生而兴建的临床化验所,同时亦是有系统的西方医学渐渐成为香港人生活一部分的印记。

建筑物于上世纪70年代完成其化验所的使命,于1996年活化成现在的医学博物馆。这里更是世界上率先以中西方病理作比较的博物馆之一,游走于树影下的典雅红砖建筑中,深入认识香港医学的历史吧!

The Hong Kong Museum of Medical Sciences

The Hong Kong Museum of Medical Sciences is an independent public museum established in 1996 by the Hong Kong Museum of Medical Sciences Society (HKMMS Society). It is housed in the Old Pathological Institute, one of Hong Kong’s declared monuments, under concessionary lease from the Government of the HKSAR.

The Mission of the Hong Kong Museum of Medical Sciences is to provide a stimulating environment for public education on health and medical sciences, past, present and future; for local and overseas visitors to appreciate aspects of Hong Kong’s rich medical heritage, including Traditional Chinese Medicine as well as Western Scientific Medicine; to be a centre for research in medical history and for preservation and display of objects relating to the development of medical and health sciences in Hong Kong.

Its Vision is to become an outstanding institution amongst museums in Hong Kong and similar museums internationally, where lessons from history and lessons for health are skilfully presented in an integrated fashion, at a site where Hong Kong’s historical fight against infectious disease actually took place, and in collaboration with other organizations, to provide first-class educational and cultural activities to persons of all ages, so that they can learn to stay healthy and be inspired to face the challenges of the future.
