We met at the MTR station and took the journey up to the musuem. Upon arrival, it was a Friday late morning, we did not have to queue for tickets, and when straight... More

Getting to the location was very easy and overall the museum was HUGE. The path getting there was a nice scenic walk and it was worth traveling there. The exhibits were informative and I enjoyed my time there. It was a lot of reading but it was worth it. I recommend checking out if you have time.

If you are not into Bruce Lee or funerary pottery just visit the middle floor, go around the glass atrium and go to the hong kong history section. Interesting to see how HK developed. The rest is a bit naff. Easily combined with a visit to the ten thousand buddha monestary as they are reached by the same MTR station.... More

Had a good time here, worth getting to by train and allow half a day including travelling. From the Bruce Lee Exhibit, to the Hong Kong heritage timeline (even how to make a handmade quilt or duvet - and only making 4 per day). The children's exhibit with the ring-spanner xylophone etc. having to make way for the Studio Ghibli... More

The museum has a variety of separate exhibitions. The Hong kong history was very interesting although not much about the British rule etc. The screen showing the future Hong kong and the information regarding the airport were fascinating. The Cantonese Opera Exhibition was the best for me as the costumes were amazing. Very intricate and the explanations under each one... More

I've never been interested in Bruce Lee, because of the violent nature. However, after visiting the Heritage Museum in Hong Kong I was impressed by what Bruce Lee had done for society. He got non-Chinese into marshal art. This is a good thing to share with others, in spite of the Chinese nature of not sharing their talents. Moreover, he... More

I grew up in HK when Bruce Lee had already passed. So while I knew about the man due to his fame associated with Kung Fu, I knew very little else about him. This exhibit is very well presented and I learned a lot about Bruce Lee as a martial artist, as well as a dancer and a philosopher. The... More

I am a fan of Bruce Lee and it was interesting to see and hear of our time kung fu champion. The exhibition told Bruce Lee's life, from beginning to end, including some of his personal belongings, as well as upon a number of video clips from his films. The exhibition is comprehensive, but could have been even bigger. On... More

Very interesting and glad we took our teenage children there to experience and understand their heritage especially when they're born and brought up in the western culture. Being fans of Bruce Lee and Ip Man, this was one of our highlights of our holidays. Lots of Bruce Lee's personal items including personal notes from his diaries, etc are on display.... More
