About the Museum

Flagstaff House Museum, Interior

Specializing in the collection, study and display of tea ware, the Flagstaff House Museum of Tea Ware features at its core the generous donations of Dr K.S. Lo (1910-1995), which include many fine examples of the famous Yixing tea ware. Built in the 1840s, Flagstaff House is an elegant reminder of Hong Kong’s colonial heritage. Formerly the office and residence of the commander of the British Forces in Hong Kong, it is one of the oldest examples of Greek Revival architecture in the city. Flagstaff House was converted into the Museum of Tea Ware in 1984 with a new wing, the K.S. Lo Gallery, added in 1995. Alongside its exhibitions, the museum holds regular demonstrations, tea gatherings and lecture programs to promote ceramic art and China’s enduring tea drinking culture.
