Three houses was originally a fenced village with a history of more than 200 years. It is one of the oldest fenced villages in Hong Kong. It was listed as a statutory monument in 1981. The museum covers an area of about 2,000 square meters. The building layout is like a chessboard and is symmetrical. The front hall, middle hall and ancestral hall were built on the central axis. On both sides are four independent bedrooms, and the horizontal houses on the left, right and back surround the whole village. In June 2016, the Intangible Cultural Heritage Office established the "Hong Kong Intangible Cultural Heritage Center" at the San Tung Uk Museum as its display and education center to promote intangible cultural heritage by organizing educational activities and exhibitions.
