Liang Yi Museum
Opened in March 2014, Liang Yi Museum is Hong Kong’s largest private museum, located on Hollywood Road, in the heart of the historic district. The four-storey museum is home to a world-class collection of Chinese antique furniture from the Ming and Qing dynasties as well as the world’s most extensive collection of European vanities. On the first Tuesday of every month is Liang Yi Talks, a lecture series where experts, scholars and academics are invited to give lectures relating to Asian culture, heritage and craftsmanship.
Liang Yi Museum is the home to one of the world’s largest and best-curated collections of Chinese antique furniture, made of the treasured materials huanghuali and zitan, from the Ming and Qing dynasties. Started in the 1980s with many of the earlier pieces purchased right here on Hollywood Road, the collection has grown over 300 pieces three decades later. Liang Yi also houses the world’s premier collection of bejeweled clutches, compacts and powder boxes. Made in the finest design houses such as Carties, Boucheron and Van Cleef & Arpels, these necessaires were once a staple of every lady’s evening wear. With nearly 400 examples from the late 1880’s through to the 1960’s, this dazzling collection provides an elegant peek at bygone ear.
