My husband is a huge Bruce Lee fan so when researching things to do in Hong Kong this exhibition was on the to-do list. While it is free on a Wednesday the entrance fee of HK$10 is excellent value as this is for the whole museum and not just this exhibit. The 75 minute documentary is informative and the personal...

I'm a life long fan of Bruce Lee. I have watched all the movies Bruce Lee made as an adult, watch many documentaries about his life and work. I have even visited the hospital he was born in San Francisco and the last house he lived in and places he has filmed before... So I was pleasantly surprised to discover... More

We enjoyed this museum very much, we were lucky and were there on a Wednesday when it was free. Being free, we had to deals with busloads of senior citizens and they were very noisy. Maybe go on a day other than Wednesday. Had a great exhibit on Bruce Lee with film. very, very interesting. Love the Chinese Opera section.... More

This museum has several main things to see- a 10 minute film shown on English on the hour plus 3 large exhibit halls on: Cantonese Opera (with another film): New Territories Heritage Hall (showing how these came about) and my favorite- Tsu Gallery of Chinese Art ( an excellent collection of mainly ceramics). This museum is not very crowded and... More

This place is pretty massive. After three hours, I still wasn't done but my wife said it was time to go. The special exhibit was about the life of Bruce Lee, and it was spectacular. It's just laid out very well, and you can spend all day here if you are the type that likes to read all the signs... More

Enjoyed a good visit here and especially at the Bruce Lee exhibition. Was never a real fan of the martial artist actor but after the visit, I became an instant fan. There were also the halls that explained how the island became a financial hub of today. Good to visit if you like to trace the growth of Hong Kong... More

A modern museum that has an eclectic mix of displays, currently including a short term and sympathetic review of Bruce Lee’s career. The TT Tsui Gallery has some outstanding items. The Cantonese Opera Hall is fun: you can dress-up in costume through computer simulation. The bistro serves cheap food with daily specials. Take the MTR to Che Kung Temple.

A must to watch the Bruce Lee documentary and to check out his personal letters. His philosophy and his passion towards martial arts just convert me. Other exhibition such as the history of Hong Kong is great as well and gives insight to the development and current situation of Hong Kong with China and British.
