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...

At the HK museum, the tickets are very cheap. You pay different rates depending on which exhibition you want to see or you can buy an all inclusive ticket. The lines for tickets are quite short because groups usually pre-book. It's a bit out of the way, but well worth the journey. We really enjoyed the Bruce Lee exhibition, which... More

I make a point of visiting every time I come to Hong Kong. Its a pleasant walk from the hotel in which we stay. I must say it must cost the Government a fortune there always seem to be more staff than visitors. The exhibits on the history of Hong Kong and its development particularly the New Territories is well... More

The museum is located within a 10 mins walk from the MTR. The entrance fees is only HK$10 to the museum and in my opinion it is a steal. The Bruce Lee's Exhibition is well presented and the exhibits are mostly Bruce Lee's personal effects from his school examination results to the stuff he used in his movies. A must... More

Took a taxi from Fortress Hill (Hong Kong island) to Sha Tin, where I was dropped off next to Che Kung MTR Station. Took 25 minutes and cost 215$HK. The Heritage Museum is a short walk across the bridge and then about 60 metres to the right. Literally 3 minutes from the MTR station exit point. Bought an admission ticket... More

It's a little walk from the train station and out of the city but I was keen to check out the Bruce Lee exhibition. It was well priced and there was a lot of movie memorabilia and interesting history surrounding this star. There isn't many cafés around a vending machine is outside the museum. Definitely worth a look inside. Allow... More
