Interesting overview of Hong Kong's Cultural Heritage

This museum is big and it is close to 10000 Buddhas monastery so I combined these two visits. The museum gives a nice overview of Hong Kong's heritage from ancient times up until... read more

Like the history museum, this one also has massive life sized structures inside the building. Very well done. Loved the Chinese Opera section.

This museum was moderately interesting except for the fact that I went there for the Bruce Lee exhibit. I'm a lifelong fan of Bruce Lee, so I was excited to see it. The highlight, for me, was a documentary about the life of Bruce Lee. It had old footage that I had never seen, and gave an inside view of... More

This museum is big and it is close to 10000 Buddhas monastery so I combined these two visits. The museum gives a nice overview of Hong Kong's heritage from ancient times up until present. I especially liked the modern art exhibition which displayed really interesting installations. Ticket was only 15HK $. A cutely designed cafe is next to the museum.T

I had originally gone to this museum to take my husband to see the opera exhibition they have, which I had seen in 2010, however I was a little upset to find they had changed most of the exhibition and down-sized it. It still had quite a few very interesting pieces to look at, but it wasn't as engaging as... More

The Hong Kong Heritage Museum is a beautiful museum in Sha Tin with 12 different exhibits and a great Bruce Lee exhibit. The exhibit is one of the best I have seen with over 600 items from the Bruce Lee Foundation and is such an incredible story of Bruce Lee's short life. It is definitely worth a visit for locals...

The museum is a long cab ride from Kowloon and difficult to find a cab back to Kowloon. We went for the Bruce Lee exhibit and were satisfied with it but wouldn't do it again.

When one thinks of words, things or names associated with Hong Kong, the name Bruce Lee would be on most people's lists, together with "shopping" and "suits" and "Suzie Wong" Ironically, apart from a statue of Bruce Lee along the Tsim Sha Tsui waterfront, there is no other place in Hong Kong that honours one of its most important sons....

The museum is a bit off other HK attractions but the Bruce Lee exhibit made the detour well worth our while. It's so interesting to see the personal artifacts, legendary old movie posters, and learn about the life of the great Kung Fu and film star (and his untimely death). The only disadvantage is that they didn't allow photos but... More

This extensive museum is divided into 12 exhibition galleries, each a treasure relics that describe the history, culture and arts of early Hong Kong and the nearby South China region. There is a collection of beautiful Chinese paintings and a comprehensive and colourful exhibition tracing the development of Cantonese opera. There is also an exhibition that looks at Bruce Lee...
