The site of the Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall is "Kom Tong Hall ". It was originally the residence of Hong Kong businessman Ho Gantang. It was completed in 1914. The memorial hall was opened to the public in 2006. It has four floors and two permanent exhibition halls. It displays a number of precious historical relics and diversified audio-visual programs. It comprehensively explains the life and deeds of Dr. Sun Yat-sen, and Hong Kong in the late 19th century. The important role played in the reform and revolutionary movement in the early twentieth century made local citizens and overseas tourists remember the footprints of this great man in Hong Kong.
There are a number of barrier-free facilities, including entrance and exit ramps, passages, elevators, and accessible toilets. The memorial itself is a statutory monument with a history of over 100 years, and some buildings fail to fully consider the needs of wheelchairs/persons with reduced mobility. The entrance to the hall is quite steep, so people with wheelchairs/handicapped need to pay attention.
