better than most of the museums in TST

since space is less of an issue in shatin than TST, this museum offers more for your buck. keep an eye out on what travelling exhibits will in town.

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...

My family and I enjoyed the museum because we were able to learn the background of Bruce Lee which I never heard before. However, it's FAR from central and not really worth the trip unless you're a fan of Bruce. And after learning about his life, you will be!

After a long haul to the museum from HK island, we find the overly large heritage museum building and it is nearly empty. Several exhibitions were closed or not opened yet. The arts and crafts history part was interesting (though small) and helped us understand som aspects of contemporary HK-chinese art and design. The Bruce Lee exhibit was somewhat interesting....

Just so happens the have had an on going Bruce Lee exhibit. You will find a huge statue of Bruce before entering the museum, great... More

The Hong Kong Heritage Museum is a huge building, in a weird mixture of modern and Chinese style architecture. The entrance hall is enormous and empty, the signage is poor and the staff unhelpful. Once you find your way upstairs, the Bruce Lee exhibition is the only item on the first floor. I have no doubt he has his fans,... More

SUPER Bruce Lee exhibit ! SUPERPRISINGLY FAST BUS service check your route and bus times .....Plan around 2 to 3 hours to view Bruce Lee exhibit and movie and eat at museum. Besides the Bruce Lee exhibit you are better off going to the museums closer to Tsim Tsa Tsui and Hong Kong Island if you are not close by... More

Being a Bruce Lee enthusiast it was a well timed holiday to Hong Kong while this exhibition was on preview, and possibly the highlight of my trip
