From displaying the gong once used in the Central Police Station, playing a video of the first case heard at the Central Magistracy, to projecting moving silhouettes inside 6 cells of the Victoria Prison, we have deployed a number of ways in our Heritage Exhibitions to feature the history, stories, and lives of people inside Tai Kwun. We have also conserved most of the original settings of the site so that you can always find your own way to experience the past and present days of the Central Police Station Compound.
