“Ordinary to Extraordinary: Stories of the Museum” showcases exceptional works curated from the four core collections of the Museum — Chinese Antiquities, Chinese Painting and Calligraphy, China Trade Art, Modern and Hong Kong Art. By sharing the fascinating stories behind these masterpieces, we hope to take you down memory lane to revisit the little-known anecdotes of the museum throughout the 57 legendary years since its founding.
