HONG KONG.- M+, Asia’s first global museum of contemporary visual culture in the West Kowloon Cultural District, announces the record-setting one million visitations today. To celebrate the milestone, Suhanya Raffel, Museum Director, M+ welcomed the one millionth visitor, who received from the museum a one-year M+ Membership and museum souvenirs, in the Main Hall, M+.

Opened to the public since 12 November 2021, M+ recorded over 383,000 visitations before its temporary closure in early January 2022 due to COVID-19 pandemic. Since its reopening on 21 April 2022, the museum saw more than 617,000 visitors. The museum has hence received one million visitations across a four-month opening period.

Suhanya Raffel says, ‘It is an unprecedented moment in Hong Kong where a museum, despite the restrictions posed by the pandemic and social distancing measures, receives such overwhelming response from the public. It is truly a testament to our success in transforming the city’s art and cultural landscape, and in laying the foundation for contemporary museum culture in Hong Kong. Hitting the one million visitation milestone in such a short time is truly remarkable and deeply encouraging. We are immensely proud of, and truly grateful to, the support from the local community since the museum opening. We cannot wait to welcome visitors from the Mainland and the rest of the world when those restrictions ease, and to present them with the meticulously curated exhibitions and programmes here in Asia’s leading global museum of contemporary visual culture.’

Online entrance reservation through the designated reservation platform is required for access to M+’s galleries. Visitors can refer to M+ website for the museum’s latest information.

M+ is a museum dedicated to collecting, exhibiting, and interpreting visual art, design and architecture, moving image, and Hong Kong visual culture of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Located in Hong Kong’s West Kowloon Cultural District, M+ is one of the largest museums of modern and contemporary visual culture in the world, with a bold ambition to establish ourselves as one of the world’s leading cultural institutions. Our aim is to be a new kind of museum that reflects our unique time and place, a museum that builds on Hong Kong’s historic balance of the local and the international to define a distinctive and innovative voice for Asia’s twenty-first century.
