Characteristics:
Dr Sun Yat-sen Museum is originally the residence of Mr Ho Kom-tong, the younger brother of the prominent philanthropist Sir Robert Ho Tung. Kom Tong Hall, named after the former owner of the mansion, was built in 1914. Since 1960, the premises had been under the care of the Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter-day Saints. In 2004, the Government acquired the mansion at a cost of $53 million to preserve its heritage and converted it to a museum opened to public in December 2006.

Kom Tong Hall is a typical Edwardian Classical building with the façade surrounded by granite columns in Greek-style. It is a 4-storey building (the ground floor is divided into the upper floor and the lower floor) with a floor area of 2,560 sq m. It was one of the earliest residential buildings constructed with reinforced concrete structure and fitted with concealed electrical wiring in Hong Kong. The interior architectural features include patterned floor tiles, hardwood wainscoting panels, crystal chandeliers and wall lamps, moulded ceilings, glazed wall tiles, wooden louvre windows, stained glass windows, fireplaces and grand staircases with carved wooden railings providing passage to all floors. Another prominent feature is a deep verandah designed for regulating the climate in all seasons.

The museum has 2 permanent exhibitions displaying a number of precious historical artefacts and gives a comprehensive overview of the life and career of Dr Sun Yat-sen, and Hong Kong's role in the reform movements and revolutionary activities in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
