TST historical museum which tells the history of Hong Kong

The museum was established by the Urban Council in July 1975 when the City Museum and Art Gallery was split into the Hong Kong Museum of History and Hong Kong Museum of Art; some of the Museum of History's collections were on display at the City Museum and Art Gallery's original 1962 location at the City Hall.
From 1975 to 1983, the Hong Kong Museum of History was housed in a 700 m2 rented space within Star House. In 1983, the Museum was moved to a temporary location (which now houses Hong Kong Heritage Discovery Centre) in Kowloon Park. It was moved to its present premises near Hong Kong Science Museum on Chatham Road South, Tsim Sha Tsui in 1998. It is currently managed by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department of Hong Kong Government.

Lamma Island is located to the southwest of Hong Kong Island. It
is the third largest island of Hong Kong, with an area of 13.55
km2 (5.23 sq mi) and a length of 7 kilometres (4.3 mi). The
northern village is called Yung Shue Wan (BanyanTree Bay) and
the eastern village is called Sok Kwu Wan (Rainbow Bay). Few
people live on the southern part of Lamma. Access for much of
this part is by hiking or private boat. Sham Wan, an important
breeding site for sea turtles, is located there.
Lamma Island got named Lamma only because of a chart reading error by Alexander Dalrymple in the 1760s. He had acquired a Portuguese chart to the entrances to the Pearl River and, close to the west of the island, the Portuguese owner had written "Lama". Dalrymple misinterpreted that as the name of the island. In all the early charts the name was spelled with only one "m". So the island acquired a British name by error and one that subsequently was Sinicized by its name being rendered phonetically in characters ("Lam a" can mean "south fork" in Cantonese), and everyone forgetting about the original muddle. At some point things became even more obscured by the addition of the second "m" in the English spelling.
