In earlier times Flagstaff House was named Headquarter House previous to 1932. The architect who designed the complex at the Flagstaff House Museum of Tea Ware is a highly argued topic. Most the experts believe either Murdoch Bruce or Lieutenant Bernard Collinson were responsible for the architectural work of the complex. The structure comprises of a Greek revival style. The creation of the complex was finished in 1846. The first person to live at the Flagstaff House was Major General George Charles D’Aguilar. The Flagstaff House was converted into the Flagstaff House Museum of Tea Ware in 1984. This became a branch of the Hong Kong Museum of Art. The museum examines, accumulates and showcases tea ware. The world’s most ancient teapot that exists as of now can be found at the Flagstaff House Museum of Tea Ware. A new section was added to the museum in the year 1995 and is called the K.S. Lo Gallery.
