I make a point of visiting every time I come to Hong Kong. Its a pleasant walk from the hotel in which we stay. I must say it must cost the Government a fortune there always seem to be more staff than visitors. The exhibits on the history of Hong Kong and its development particularly the New Territories is well... More

The museum is located within a 10 mins walk from the MTR. The entrance fees is only HK$10 to the museum and in my opinion it is a steal. The Bruce Lee's Exhibition is well presented and the exhibits are mostly Bruce Lee's personal effects from his school examination results to the stuff he used in his movies. A must... More

Took a taxi from Fortress Hill (Hong Kong island) to Sha Tin, where I was dropped off next to Che Kung MTR Station. Took 25 minutes and cost 215$HK. The Heritage Museum is a short walk across the bridge and then about 60 metres to the right. Literally 3 minutes from the MTR station exit point. Bought an admission ticket... More

It's a little walk from the train station and out of the city but I was keen to check out the Bruce Lee exhibition. It was well priced and there was a lot of movie memorabilia and interesting history surrounding this star. There isn't many cafés around a vending machine is outside the museum. Definitely worth a look inside. Allow... More

Located in the New Territories it is only a short walk from Che Kung Temple Station. Cross the foot bridge over the waterway and you are there. Only 3 sections were open. Section 1 on a history of the New Territories. Section 2 was a collection of statues from China throughout the ages and of course section three about Bruce... More

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,
