This thread IS divided into a binary choice, there or here. Do you understand that?
And HK's museums compared to Zurich's are mostly shit in my opinion and not in your opinion. Both views are subjective, do you understand that?
As for B&W, if you're so nuanced why have you repeatedly attempted to make my opinion black? Mostly & "There are no decent museums in HK?".
I know the answer, do you?
I've even BOLDED the "MOSTLY", and you s.t.i.l.l. get it wrong.
P.S-Just curious, did you have some really bad experience at a HK museum? Your obsession with this topic is getting a little...weird otherwise.
Someone mentioned Basel, which is where there is a road border with France, 30 minutes from Mulhouse in Alsace Loraine, where they have one of the best train museums and Bugatti Car collections ( museum) in the world. HK has NOTHING like this unless the Tai Po Train museum is your idea of a satisfying example? Then there is the Horse Museum in Chantilly, which is one of many museums we have visited which are located close to my family's homes in Moussey Le Neuf, same with the one below.
Moving along, we also thoroughly enjoyed the aviation/aerospace museum located at the original Paris airport, in Le Bourget, which has A LOT of aviation historical significance, with both a prototype ( larger) and a commercial production example of the Concorde hangared there. Then there is, The Louvre in Paris and I'll also include London's Natural History Museum a short walk from our regular Marriott Hotel in Kensington and Harrods. All thoroughly enjoyable Museum experiences that again, HK just does not provide an equivalent experience. They're a bit dinky, don't you agree ?
So, I have to agree with Sage, I know exactly what he meant by his opinion. I LOVE museums by the way, even if my opinion of them is heavily interest specific. Anyway I have provided some links below just for example's sake.
Now if you haven't visited the above locations, I highly recommend them all when airline travel reverts back to pre covid conditions, if you actually appreciate this sort of stuff. :-)
@Coolboy, My point about the museums in HK is not that they are absolutely rubbish, but that the general situation is very disappointing for a city (or rather a Chinese province) with 8 million people.
You can compare it to other provinces (or cities) in the world with 8 million people, to see how the HK situation actually is. I compared it to Paris, London and New York. Then you say "oh, but these are quite out of the ordinary". Fine, let's compare them to Switzerland, a place with a similar population (8.5 million people v. 7.5 million). There are many outstanding museums in Switzerland compared to which those in HK are a complete joke. E.g. the Swiss museum of transport in Luzern. Compare that the the HK railway museum. Haha!
Hell, even the Museo cantonale di storia naturale in Lugano, a city with 60,000 people, is better than any museum in HK.
So what else is HK good for? Asia's fiancial centre? Haha. HK banks are rubbish. You can't even buy stocks in other countries, except China and USA (for some banks).
So, what is HK very good at, to compensate for the staff it's very bad at (culture, climate, pollution, crowdedness, rubbish banks, etc.)?
