We came here with one motivation - to see the Bruce Lee exhibition. Yes, I admit I had a manicure in the morning and this was the boy activity in the afternoon. It is a bit of a trek from HK Island centre, but it was very good. I hoped to see other exhibits but you do need to allow... More

This museum was close to our accommodation and gave us a good insight into what once was. There is a good mix of art (tapestries, china) and history of Hong Kong. I am not sure if it is a permanent exhibition, but they had a very good Bruce Lee exhibition. This is where we spent most of our time. Worth... More

My main motivation for going was the Bruce Lee exhibition. Sadly, the film was not showing that day due to some other function, but my ticket was validated to come back anytime in 2015 to see it. The exhibition is stunningly good. Really well curated, excellent English descriptions. No photos allowed in there though. Do check out the statue outside,... More

We went specifically for the Bruce Lee exhibition, but got an additional delight with the Dunhuang exhibition. The museum is easily accessible by train and is a short walk from the Che Kung Temple train station in New Territories. Although I did not use them, there were earphones for those who need translations. I believe you can make reservation to... More

If you're a Bruce Lee fan then this is an absolute must!!! The exhibition, which is a large part of the second floor, has everything from his original notes, sketches, training equipment and poetry to his custom made nunchaku and the yellow jumpsuit worn in the Game of Death. It really is a very broad collection of his life and... More

The Heritage Museum is out by Sha Tin and you can be forgiven for thinking that this was a bit far too go for a visit but this would be a serious mistake. At the moment the Heritage Museum is offering a stunning exhibition on the Dun Huang Caves. These epic places were on the silk road and held a... More

If you are craving a cultural perspective and respite from the Kowloon crowds, don't miss this wonderful professional museum/gallery. Grab the MTR and get off at the Che Tung Temple station and it's a short walk across the river. Alternatively get off at Sha Tin station and walk the maze of top end shops in New Town Plaza - if...

We came across this interesting museum quite by accident, after escaping into the Park from the crowds and bustle of Hong Kong's Nathan road. We had ducked into the park to rest our feet, and look at the amazing tree collection. The Heritage Museum, in the heart of the park, is free to enter, cool, quiet, and packed with interest....

Didn't plan visiting HK Heritge Museum at first but so coincidentally the heritage museum is located not far away from New Town Plaza whereby we visited the Snoopy Park, we decided to check out the museum without knowing what to expect. Entrance fee is merely HK$10, you may opt to go for HK$20 ticket which allows you to visit both... More
