HSBC Archives contains some of the best business and arts collection in the world, including annual reports, minute books, accounting ledgers, correspondences, photographs, cartoons, films, advertisements, banknotes and oral history. These records do not only reflect the colourful history of HSBC, but also capture the social, economic and political developments of Hong Kong and the wider region.
The tour in the Archives Gallery and Repository tells the story of HSBC's rich and eventful heritage in the Asia-Pacific region through rare exhibits, virtual galleries and interactive displays. The tour provides visitors opportunities to explore the intertwined history of the bank and Hong Kong with cutting-edge technology. Visitors can also learn about the bank's invaluable contributions to Hong Kong and be connected to the people who influence HSBC's story.
Hong Kong Arts Administrators Association (HKAAA) is honored to organise a guided tour at HSBC Archives and have invited representatives of HSBC to lead the archives tour. They will share their experience on curating and setting up the digital exhibition as well the behind-the-scenes about archives conservation.
