City Gallery is an exhibition centre about the planning and development of urban areas in Hong Kong. It is located at Edinburgh Place in Central, Victoria City. It is a public relations effort of the Planning Department of the Hong Kong government.

History[edit]

It was previously known as the Hong Kong Planning and Infrastructure Exhibition Gallery (Chinese: 香港規劃及基建展覽館) and was set up in 2002 on the ground floor of the City Hall annex building as a temporary exhibition gallery, pending the establishment of a full-fledged permanent exhibition gallery which will occupy the entire City Hall Annex Building.

To make way for the refurbishment and expansion works at the City Hall Annex, the temporary gallery was relocated to the ground floor of the Murray Road Multi-storey Car Park in mid-2009 to maintain continuous services to the public.

The permanent gallery reopened in the City Hall annex building in 2012.[1]

Description[edit]

The gallery showcases the planning proposals and infrastructure projects of the Hong Kong Government. It comprises six main sections: Imprint, Hong Kong 2030, New Kai Tak, Transport & Logistics, Sustainable Development and Living Environment. Interactive features and devices give visitors the latest information on planning and infrastructure developments in Hong Kong.

Admission is free of charge.

Transportation[edit]

The gallery is accessible within walking distance West from Central Station of MTR.
