A rather small museum with not many exhibitions to offer but if you take the ticket price into consideration, it may be a cheap way to kill some time when you dun have anything to do during weekend. Occasionally, it has some special features with reputable masterpiece such as the Picasso exhibition. However, with those internationally well-known pieces in the... More

We took MTR to Che Kung Temple and there will be road signs guiding you to the museum. You'll have to cut across this bridge. The journey takes about 10-15 minutes. If I remembered correctly, my family and I were there on a Wednesday. And every Wednesday, the entrance fee is free for certain exhibitions. During my visit in August,... More

This is a great place in a wonderfully scenic location right in the heart of the New Territories East next to a bustling urban location. Just getting there helps put you in a serene frame of mind with the egrets on the water and bird calls from the trees . The museum itself is attractive and has both permanent, semi-permanent... More

This museum was a bit hard to find, as we walked from the 10,000 buudha's but we got there eventually. The museum has a childrens discovery room, art and the Bruce Lee expo. We came really for this exhibition, and it was so worth it. Very slick and covered his youth as well as his hey day. We didnt have... More

We saw a good documentary on the life of Bruce Lee (followed by a gallery of Bruce Lee memorabilia), an exhibit on drawings: Studio Ghibli Layout Designs: Understanding the Secrets of Takahata and Miyazaki Animation, and an exhibit on chairs through history. My favorite exhibits, though, were the permanent exhibits– (i) the TT Tsui gallery of Chinese Art, especially the... More

It has a pretty good collection on display that takes you on a historical journey of Hong Kong's seafarers and maritime adventurers.

I visited the Hong Kong Heritage Museum because my friend told me that there was an ongoing Studio Ghibli animation layout exhibit. Finding the museum is a bit tricky if you took the MTR and got off at the Sha Tin station since it's a bit of a walk. Aside from this, asking around for directions among locals is a... More

Watched a complimentary Documentary Film: The Brilliant Life of Bruce Lee (Duration 75 minutes,... More

I really enjoyed my visit here. $30HKD to see all exhibitions, if you come for something specific there are individual ticket prices. But see it all if you can. Studio Ghibli, Bruce Lee and permanent exhibition of bronze, ceramics and the like. I went early and before the crowds. I am a fan of the work produced by Studio Ghibli... More
