Ma On Shan was the only iron mine in Hong Kong and had employed more than 3,000 miners during its peak and boasted as many as 10,000 residents living there. Starting from a mining industry to gradually develop into a village with a church and a school, there were many interesting stories with love, laughter and tears behind.

The guided tour will guide the participant through the mining village, religious architecture and the mining heritage site. Participants will “act” as miners, learn about the glorious history of Ma On Shan mine in 1950s and 1960s and get a real look into a miner’s life. After the 3-hour exploratorium tour, participants will have a special understanding of our unique mining industry.
