About the Gallery

The CUHK History Gallery (formerly known as the University Gallery), sponsored by The T.S. Kwok Foundation, debuted in 2013 to mark CUHK's golden jubilee. It was renamed as CUHK History Gallery in 2022. After a significant makeover as part of the University's diamond jubilee celebrations, it reopens on 19th September 2023. The Gallery tells an exciting tale of the University's path towards excellence with purpose and responsibility through the display of historical photos, objects, videos and multimedia materials.
