Visited the Hong Kong Heritage Museum on the recommendation of this site and was not disappointed as the Bruce Lee Exhibition was more than worthwhile on its own merits. Furthermore, the current Fashion: Paper, Scissors, Rock Exhibit was aesthetically spectacular, while the Glimpse of Tsui's Collection provided an informative historical journey through Chinese artifacts dating back over two thousand years....

Brilliant Museum with lots of interesting things to see but the Bruce lee exhibit is probably the highlight of this place...it's a real gem, you get to see lots of Bruce's personal stuff (clothes, notebook, birth certificate, training equipment...etc) you can't take pictures though..but I did :) Bruce lee fans, Enjoy ;)

A gem for a rainy day, covers both folklore and ancient pieces. Don't miss the Bruce Lee exhibition on the top floor, gives you a great insight to the man and his movies.

We went for the Bruce Lee exhibit .... Very glad we did! Was great to see the respect they have for this amazing person . Learned some new and interest eying facts . Not a big exhibit at all so unless you are a huge fan may not be worth the travel, you are not allowed to take any pictures... More

One of my favorite museums in Hong Kong. The other favorite is the history museum. They have a variety of exhibits related to Hong Kong culture. The most notable being the Bruce Lee one. Definitely worth checking out. And free admission every Wednesday. Otherwise it's only HKD 10.

Some regular exhibitions eg. Chinese opera, mixed with some special exhibitions. Unfortunately some have been closed down for new display eg. New Territory cultural exhibition for one year. However, Bruce Lee's exhibition is still there. A must for his fans.Also international photographic exhibition.

Plain ugly from the outside, this museum is much more attractive on the inside. The central staircase that is off-limits (so Mainland Chinese, yet this is Hong Kong!) tops it all. However, the exhibitions are actually quite interesting, e.g. the Cantonese Opera hall. Sometimes there's an interesting temporary exhibition that is worth seeing, so you have to keep an eye...
