University Museum and Art Gallery, The University of Hong Kong

Who We Are

The University Museum and Art Gallery (UMAG) of The University of Hong Kong was founded in 1953 as the Fung Ping Shan Museum. Originally established as the Fung Ping Shan Library of Chinese language publications in 1932, the building became a museum dedicated to collecting Chinese art after the University's libraries consolidated. The museum was renamed UMAG in 1994, shortly before its new wing was opened to the public in 1996. UMAG is the oldest continuously operated museum in Hong Kong, and over the past sixty years has built up a diverse collection of ceramics and bronzes dating from the Neolithic period to the Qing dynasty, as well as traditional and modern paintings and works on paper from the Ming to the twenty-first century. In addition to these permanent collections, UMAG regularly hosts exhibitions of contemporary and ancient Chinese and Western art, and on early Hong Kong history.

What We Do

The University Museum and Art Gallery (UMAG) aspires to generate artistic and cultural experiences that are accessible to people in all walks of life. We seek to encourage greater appreciation of the arts and to nurture a stronger sense of cultural values within the Hong Kong community. UMAG strives to use its permanent collection and temporary exhibitions to accomplish scholarly projects in accord with various departments and curricula from across the University.
