Went to visit the Bruce Lee exhibition during our recent stay in Hong Kong, this was a brilliant exhibition for any Bruce Lee fans. At only 10 Hong Kong dollars for entry and free on Weds this is excellent value.

I come here once in a while when there is a change in the exhibitions. People often forget that Hong Kong has other attractions apart from the 'city' bright lights and skyscrapers. The Hong Kong Heritage Museum started out with average funding and foresight by its creators only for the main building of quaint Chinese facade. The design and layout... More

This is 1 of the favorite Museum which we will visit quite frequently when we dropped by HK. One can either alights at KCR Che Kung Temple Sta and crossed the Shing Mun River to get to the museum via a nice and peaceful walk, or from Shatin sta. direct. The building is quite majestic from the outside but not... More

It is interesting to go there and see the big deco about HK history. There won't be too crowd normally. I don't mind to go again.

We went here on an impulse decision on the last day of our holiday in Hong Kong. It was really worth a visit and I was glad that I had the opportunity to look around even if it was for an hour. We were short on time and wished that we had gone to the museum earlier to spend a... More

The Heritage Museum makes for a great half-day (or a leisurely full-day) excursion away from crowds and a little bit off the beaten track. Great for a rainy day or when it's really hot out. I've been several times over the years, and there's nearly always a special exhibit of interest. This winter it was a visiting PRC exhibit of... More

Sha Tin area by the Shing Mun River makes a lovely destination for a day trip in Hong Kong. It is easily reached by metro and besides the great museum you can visit Ten Thousand Buddhas Monastery and see what is going on at the New Town Plaza (at the time of our visit various performances) or take your kids...

We came here with one motivation - to see the Bruce Lee exhibition. Yes, I admit I had a manicure in the morning and this was the boy activity in the afternoon. It is a bit of a trek from HK Island centre, but it was very good. I hoped to see other exhibits but you do need to allow... More

This museum was close to our accommodation and gave us a good insight into what once was. There is a good mix of art (tapestries, china) and history of Hong Kong. I am not sure if it is a permanent exhibition, but they had a very good Bruce Lee exhibition. This is where we spent most of our time. Worth... More

My main motivation for going was the Bruce Lee exhibition. Sadly, the film was not showing that day due to some other function, but my ticket was validated to come back anytime in 2015 to see it. The exhibition is stunningly good. Really well curated, excellent English descriptions. No photos allowed in there though. Do check out the statue outside,... More
