Jao Tsung-I Academy

With over 100 years of rich and vibrant history, Jao Tsung-I Academy is one of Hong Kong’s cultural landmarks. It was a customs station during the Qing dynasty (1644–1912), then became labourers’ quarters, and thereafter, a quarantine station, prison, infectious disease hospital and psychiatric rehabilitation centre, respectively. The building itself also has unique historical and architectural significance.

 

To promote cultural inheritance, the academy organizes guided tours, thematic exhibitions, weekend markets, workshops and educational programmes.
