Lei Cheng Uk Han Tomb & Museum [????- ]

Open to the public. Introduction from their website:

No. 5 Boundary Stone (Replica)

This boundary stone is exhibited at the Hong Kong Museum of History in Tsim Sha Tsui. 

Obviously, it's a replica - and not an exact one!

It bears the date 1899; this is ok with the year of delimitation of the boundary, but the original shows the date 1898 - that's the year of the Second Peking Convention.

Museum of old Hong Kong

My colleague, John Anton-Smith, has asked me to query whether there is a physical museum, either already in existence or in the planning, that might display some of the artefacts mentioned on Gwulo. In John's view, this could help to raise awareness of Gwulo among residents and tourists alike. He may have some items to contribute to such a museum.
