Free entry which was awesome. I found most of the exhibits uninteresting but the Bruce Lee exhibits were worth seeing from his personal life. The statue ouside is awesome :)

The Heritage Museum is one of Hong Kong's best 'lesser known' attractions. It is located just southwest of Shatin Park in Sha Tin and provides an excellent opportunity to learn more about Hong Kong as well as regional Chinese culture and heritage. Opening hours are 10am to 6/7pm depending on the day of the week. Permanent Exhibits are now free to visit. Here you will find a handful of permanent exhibits as well as changing temporary exhibitions spaced out over two floors of museum space. Galleries include precious artefacts and art, opera items and other interesting elements of local heritage and history. There is a children's discovery gallery with various play zones, making for a good way to for the little ones to spend time at the Heritage Museum. There is a popular Bruce Lee temporary exhibition that has been running since 2013. It is scheduled to end next year in 2020. This is worth time to view if you are fan of the movie star and martial artist. You'll find an expected gift shop, cafe & clean bathrooms. The museum website is up to date with temporary exhibitions that are slated for the upcoming future. That is worth checking out prior to intended visits. Other interesting things to do nearby in Shatin include Shatin Park, The Racecourse (on race days), Che Kung and Man Fat Sze temples as well as the popular New Town Plaza shopping mall.

Bruce Lee fans in particular can’t miss. Easy to get to on East Rail Line. Bicyclists and walkers will enjoy the river bike and walks path, too. Special exhibits worth checking out and fans of Chinese calligraphy will be pleased to find a recreation of Professor Chao’s renowned studio and related exhibits. Nice cafe too with outdoor terrace, a nice half day excursion.
