A little culture goes a long way.

To be totally honest, this trip was all about me... and ended up being a great time for both of us. I grew up a huge fan of the legendary Kung Fu icon Bruce Lee. Just so happens... read more

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....

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

Hong Kong is a great and very exciting city It is very easy to navigate with public transporatation. Don't miss the Cable car to Lantau and the Big Budddah

Best part was the display on Chinese Opera. Lovely costumes, sets and props. We wished there were performances to see! The tableau son life in early Hong Kong was also informative. And the cost was very low. Well worth a trip.

Get away from the centre of Hong Kong and experience this great museum. Exhibits range from Qing/Ming dynasty examples of art to Bruce Lee fandom and then, unusually, a Claud Monet Exhibition? So East meets west well and truly! Extremely interesting and all well presented! Fantasic!!

A liitle out of the way in Sha Tin, but just a short walk from Che Kung station or through New Town Plaza. The permanent Bruce Lee exhibition is reason enough to visit. At the moment there is a visiting Monet exhibition which runs until July 11, 2016. Catch this while you can. Museum closed Tuesdays.
