Our Collection

New Banner_2.jpgThe Hong Kong Heritage Project (HKHP) archive houses a rich collection of primary and secondary sources that inform HKHP's exhibitions and outreach programmes.      

The Hong Kong Heritage Project (HKHP) was established in 2007 to collect, interpret and make accessible the historical records of the Kadoorie Family and their business and charitable activities through an archive facility. Today, the archive houses a collection of more than 150 linear metres of paper records, as well as the largest oral history collection in Hong Kong. Many of these records were donated by The Hongkong and Shanghai Hotels and CLP, companies with a longstanding history in Hong Kong.

The HKHP archive sheds light on the business, social and economic history of Hong Kong and Shanghai from 1884 – 1980, and holds substantial collections on:

  • Hong Kong's rural communities
  • Hong Kong industry, manufacturing and tourism
  • Hong Kong's post-war development
  • The Kadoorie Family's connection to the Jewish community

HKHP's archives are available to the public in line with our access policy. Click here to find out more. Select archival holdings are available in Highlight Document, Photo Gallery and Oral History. For specific research enquiries, please feel free to contact us directy.
