Ming Dynasty and Hong Kong Disneyland

We stumbled upon the Hong Kong Heritage Discovery Center in
Kowloon Park, a small, free museum regarding the history of Hong Kong over the centuries. Well worth a visit if you have a spare hour.

One room highlights some of the 7000 pieces of blue and white Ming Dynasty ceramics found when excavating for the build of Hong Kong Disneyland.

With New Zealand being such a young country, we have little in the way of old artefacts.

I particularly love being somewhere where ancient history meets pop culture. To think, hundreds of years ago, people lived and worked there and their dishes are now under the castle.
