"Hong Kong Industries" Collection Campaign
Hong Kong's industries are light industries including textiles, garments, toys, plastics, electronics, metal goods, clocks and watches, as well as printing services, and food and beverage production. From the pre-war period to now, Hong Kong industries have weathered many challenges and changes: the embargo policy towards China, moving of factories to the mainland, the transformation of Hong Kong's economy, and more emphases on innovation and technology. These factors have shaped and continue to shape the development of Hong Kong industries.
The Hong Kong Museum of History is now appealing to the public to donate items related to Hong Kong industries to enrich our collection to facilitate our researches and for exhibitions. We welcome donations of manufactured goods, product catalogues, product design drawings, sales orders, advertisements, promotional videos, tools, and photos related to items that are, or were at one time, designed, made, or assembled in Hong Kong. We sincerely invite your kind donation of Hong Kong industrial products from different eras. Your contribution will facilitate our researches on Hong Kong's industries.
To make a donation of Hong Kong industrial items to us, please send images of your items along with your name and telephone number to us through one of the following means:
