This museum is best for adults and older children. Well laid out. Cafe was closed whilst we were there unfortunately. Free on Wednesdays but be prepared to share with school children!

Visited the Heritage Museum to check out the Bruce Lee exhibition what a good choice. Really easy to get to on the MTR, exit the station, cross the river on the footbridge and your're there. Entrance fee was really cheap and the Bruce Lee rooms are up the escalator. Some really interesting items on show; from his childhood right the... More

Before I haven’t visit Hong Kong Heritage Museum because I prefer modern things to historical things. Why I visited the Hong Kong Heritage Museum this time? Because they organized an exhibition with cooperation of Studio Ghibli and Ghibli Museum. During this visit, I found over 1,300 items of layout design selected from works by Isao Takahata and Hayao Miyazaki throughtout... More

I really like this museum in the New Teritories. Walkable from the train station, it is worth a visit for the lavish Cantonese opera costumes alone. I've visited many times and there is always something new of interest,

if you're wishing for some time away from the crowds and lines of HK island and Kowloon, this is a great place to check out - located in the New Territories, this museum is a short walk from either the Che Kung Temple (closest) or Sha Tin MTR stations. Some of the exhibits were closed, however, the Bruce Lee exhibit... More

Visited for the second time so only wanted to check out the Bruce Lee exhibit. Wednesdays is free admission (to all museums etc as I understand), and it was not crowded and had some nice displays. Definitely worth a couple of hrs even with regular admission.

I can't speak to the general quality of this museum, but I was not impressed with our visit. We came in late March 2015 and more than 50% of the museum was closed for renovation (maybe closer to 60%). Nobody bothered telling us this before we paid to come in. Now HK$20 isn't that much to a westerner that can... More

Compared to the museums in parts of Hong Kong that isn't as inaccessible for first time visitors (it's practically halfway to Mainland China) it will strike one as a let down. The building itself strikes one as being more like an old mall than a museum. Certainly, Hong Kong's history was far better presented by the history museums in Kowloon.... More

We made the mistake of not paying the additional money for the special exhibits. If I had it all to do over we would have. As such, we didn't get to visit the entire second floor. We thought about buying tickets all over again but after 25 of travel we were just exhausted. We really enjoyed this museum with all... More

The exhibition is well organised. Pay attention to when they have free tour to plan for the trip. But dont worry, even if you miss the tour, you can always download the audio guide apps on your phone.
