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

I took my kids to the museum as they had the Studio Ghibli exhibition there. The museum is situation in Sha Tin which is accessible by MTR, and the museum is a short walk from the station through the shopping malls. While we only had time to visit the Studio Ghibli & Bruce Lee Exhibition, it was a nice activity... 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
