Students & Teachers

We work closely with schools and other partners to enrich student experience. Through museum visits, object-based learning, hands-on workshops, and school outreach programmes, we take learning beyond the classroom.

Our diverse school programmes seek to inspire students to learn individually and collaboratively. In an immersive environment, students are encouraged to discover the dialogue between the past and the present, see cultural heritage in a new light, and combine art and technology for creative and experimental learning.

School Visit Programme

School Group Visits

From daily objects to costumes to architecture, artefacts allow us to discover history and traditional craftsmanship, as well as the cultural exchanges that have taken place. During the visit, students can get up close to over 900 national treasures from the Palace Museum collection. Students are encouraged to engage in self-directed and cross-disciplinary learning, exploring Chinese art and culture outside of the classroom and creating a link between heritage, modern life, and personal experiences through innovative learning resources and pedagogies.

We welcome students of all ages and levels to visit the Museum. Quota is limited. Schools successfully registered for the visits will be contacted by the HKPM team to confirm the arrangement.

HKPM Student Ambassador

The Hong Kong Palace Museum Student Ambassador Programme, solely sponsored by the China Merchants Foundation, is designed for tertiary and secondary students, with the goal to cultivate the students’ interest in and knowledge of Chinese art and culture through a series of learning workshops and practical sessions. The Programme will not only enhance students’ understanding of cultural objects and museum work, but also nurture future arts and cultural talents and museum professionals in Hong Kong.

The Programme offerings range from lectures about palace culture to docent training, artmaking and conservation workshops at the Museum, and visits to local arts and cultural organisations. Students will have the opportunity to study up close the treasures on view at the Museum and learn about their historical and cultural significance. As ambassadors of the Museum, students will be able to serve as the Museum’s docents and will share their newly-gained knowledge and skills with their peers and inspire more young people to learn about Chinese art and culture.

The second Hong Kong Palace Museum Student Ambassador Programme has officially launched on 2 December 2023.

“Palace Museum Dreamscapes” – Beijing Study Tour 2024

“Palace Museum Dreamscapes”, jointly launched by the Palace Museum and the Beijing Palace Museum Foundation, is a philanthropic cultural programme aimed at building cultural confidence among young people, especially underprivileged young people. In 2024, with the support of the Hong Kong Jockey Club, the project will be extended to Hong Kong. The Hong Kong Palace Museum will assist in local youth recruitment and selection.

Selected Hong Kong youth will participate in a 6-day, 5-night Palace Study Tour in Beijing in August, immersing themselves in learning activities at the Palace Museum. They will take practical courses in archaeology, have cultural exchanges with mainland students, and jointly explore the historical and cultural landmarks of Beijing. This journey will be packed with rich learning content. It will be a rare opportunity for Hong Kong youth to immerse themselves in the rich cultural heritage of China.

The study tour is free of charge. Applications are accepted until 21 June 2024. Young people aged 10 to 15 who are currently studying in primary or secondary schools in Hong Kong are welcome to apply through school nominations.
