Tsui Museum of Art

The Tsui Museum of Art in Hong Kong houses a privately-owned collection.

It is the creation of Hong Kong businessman T.T. Tsui who began collecting antiques in the 1970s and features rotating exhibits from the 3,000-piece collection.

Chinese ceramics ranging from the painted pottery of the Neolithic period to the porcelain of the Qing Dynasty form the collection's cornerstone. In addition, the scope of the Tsui Museum encompasses bronzes; bamboo, wood and ivory carvings; jade, enamelledled ware, glass, furniture, Han Dynasty tomb statues.

Formerly located in the old Bank of China building, the museum has moved to Henley Building, at 5 Queen's Road, Central.

Mr. Tsui has also founded the Tsui Art Foundation, loaned a part of his collection to Hong Kong University (University Museum and Art Gallery) and has made donations to galleries in Australia, England and the United States.
