Tai Kwun is the Centre for Heritage and Arts and aspires to offer the best heritage and arts experiences, and to cultivate knowledge and appreciation of contemporary art, performing arts and history in the community.

It is situated in the restored Central Police Station compound, one of the most significant revitalization projects in Hong Kong, comprising three declared monuments—the former Central Police Station, Central Magistracy and Victoria Prison.

The revitalization project has been led by The Hong Kong Jockey Club in partnership with the Government of the Hong Kong SAR. The highest standards of heritage conservation have been applied at Tai Kwun, with unfailing attention to authenticity, bringing more than a dozen historic buildings to life. In contrast to their original functions as police station, courthouse and prison, the buildings are now fully on display, giving the public the chance to appreciate up close their contrasting architectural features and fine design details.

Visitors will be immersed in the rich heritage of the unique historical compound through interactive tours, heritage storytelling spaces, diverse education programmes and thematic heritage exhibitions. The new building, JC Contemporary, houses a not-for-profit art center dedicated to presenting contemporary art exhibitions and programmes as a platform for a flourishing cultural discourse in Hong Kong. It hosts six to eight exhibitions annually alongside extensive public programmes.
