The museum, Heritage of Mei Ho House, is a privately-run museum under Hong Kong Youth Hostels Association. It showcases the housing development of Sham Shui Po and Shek Kip Mei in the 1950s and 1970s, early public housing settings as well as life stories of former residents.

We have been receiving overwhelming positive feedback from the general public since its opening in October 2013. During the closing hours of the museum, local corporates and commercial can apply for exclusive private group tour service. Guided tour service is also available.
