To inspire continuous discovery of Tai Kwun, two heritage galleries located in the former Victoria Prison — B Hall & D Hall — have unveiled new permanent exhibitions in Autumn 2023. The two remodelled galleries kick off a multiyear project for refreshing and enriching heritage interpretation across the site. Asking questions, such as — “What is Prison Life Like?” “What Hurts? What Heals?” — the new exhibitions are based on newly uncovered research that deepens our understanding about the site's complex histories, the real people, and their experiences within the prison walls.
The interpretation highlights the historic prison as a transformed heritage site for reconciliation and peacemaking, for transcending the wall of separation, and for connecting all people, including the vulnerable and the marginalised.
