This museum gives a lot of information that the history museum does, except it is free (history museum also free on Wednesdays). You can find imformation on Hong Kong architecture, from ancient to modern, and archaeology, pottery and cultural changes throughout time too. It's situated in a lovely park and is open til 7pm I think.

we did not expect to spend as much time here as we did. The exhibits were interesting, detailed and in English also. There is a great exhibit on the New Territories, history and culture, but it also describes how the New Territories grew and how they did their city planning. This was fascinating. For anyone interested in how Hong Kong... More

The Hong Kong Heritage Museum was an excellent place to visit during rainy days. In the month of Jan 2016, admission is free. It is such a treat for the museum is worth a visit if you are near Shatin. The collection of Traditional Children's wearables is interesting and most of the pieces are exquisite and very well kept

Well spent time in this museum. Especially Bruce Lee collection is well prepared including the brochure. You can see 3D animation of Brice Lee and his teacher Li. Also several letters to his wife Linda.

This museum is a must visit and it has free entry till the end of January 2016. There are some brilliant exhibits about Hong Kong, its heritage, development and much more. There is a really good exhibit about Bruce Lee which is well worth a look. I would highly recommend this museum.

Even if you only have a passing interest in the legendary Bruce Lee, don't miss it. Other exhibits at the museum also excellent.

This museum is well worth a visit.FREE ENTRY till the end of January 2016.I particularly enjoyed the Bruce Lee museum on the second floor,only till July 2018!Also there is a 75mn documentary about that iconic superstar. On the first floor there is an area dedicated to traditional Chinese Opera and traditional children clothes well worth a visit.

This is a great way to spend the day where you will find really interesting exhibits including Ming dynasty vases in the Tsui section, Tibetan relics from 210 BC and a cool exhibition of childrens clothes over the years which is fantastic however the star attraction is Hong Kong's biggest ever global star - Bruce Lee. On arrival you are... More

I love going here anytime iam in Hong Kong. For the longest time they had "Bruce Lee Art and Life" exhibit which is a must for fans of the Bruce.. In 2015 they added a Studio Ghibli exhibit i think? I'll be going there again in a few days to confirm.

I went there because I happened to be in Sha Tin early Dec. Getting there is easy by KCR Train and the entrance fee is only HKD10. It turned out a bit disappointing; the Bruce Lee Exhibition, however, is the most interesting having all the replicas (most of them are) and the mini theatre showing a 20 mins footage of... More
