Some visitors went to the exhibition with video cameras to tapeall the photos and historic documents for record. Some took photoswith Deng Xiaoping's bronze statue or in front of big photos of Deng.

People queued up before the opening hour of the exhibition or lingered after the closing hour at the Hong Kong Exhibition Center.

A 90-minute documentary film on Deng attracted much of the audience, moving some of them to tears. Many viewers had to stand to watch the film as the 80 seats there were far from enough.
