The Hong Kong Palace Museum occupies some 13,000 square metres with a total floor area of about 30,000 square metres and exhibition space of 7,800 square metres.
It provides barrier-free facilities and nursery rooms with ample rest areas both inside and outside, as well as an array of amenities including an auditorium, learning spaces, a gift shop, and dining areas. It is easily accessible by MTR, bus, taxi or private car.
Three atriums will connect the different floors of the museum vertically, referencing the horizontal spatial configuration along the central axis of the Forbidden City.
From the atriums visitors can enjoy vistas of the Entrance Plaza, the Hong Kong Island skyline, and Lantau Island, and appreciate the harmony between the museum building and its surroundings.
