Thursday Doors: Flagstaff Museum

IMG_20180905_092951

The Flagstaff House, built in 1846, was once called Headquarter House.  It served as the residence of the Commander of the British forces in Hong Kong. The building is a reminder of Hong Kong’s colonial heritage.

Today, it is the Flagstaff House Museum of Tea Ware and sits in the middle of the lovely Hong Kong Park, an oasis from the concrete that surrounds it.

Inside is a large collection of historical tea ware.

Whenever I walk through the park, this arbor beside the museum invites me to sit a while.

    1. That’s very true indeed, it’s a wonderful blend of east meets west actually. But, certainly not like the Mainland. So glad your son had the opportunity to spend some time in China. I hope he enjoyed his time there. =)

  3. I love the doors and the teapots! I have to laugh, though, as I was expecting doors from Flagstaff, Arizona. 🙂 Very different place!

    1. That is funny, I didn’t think of that. =) Yes, I’ve never been to Arizona but I can certainly imagine it is quite different.
