With all the garbage of shopping malls and hype, this spot is a refreshing bit of intelligence and well done exhibits that show Hong Kong's history. Well worth a few hours time.

This is a great Museum and an amazing Bruce Lee Exhibit. The exhibit goes all thru Bruce's life from Kowloon to the US and back. Family history, Film History, and quite a few artifacts as well. Well worth the stop.

The museum is a bit further out from the main tourists spots and requires a few MTR changes but it is worth the trek. Parts of the museum will have special limited exhibits. The permanent exhibits are HK on the bottom and the Bruce Lee exhibit at the top. The Bruce Lee exhibit is thoughtfully put together and fans will... More

My husband and I visited the Heritage Museum purely for the Bruce Lee exhibition as we are both big fans, but ended up looking round the rest of this amazing museum too and wished we had a full day to explore it, it was so great. The Bruce Lee exhibition gave a great insight into his personal life as well... More

This free museum was quite a trek from where we were staying but it gave us a chance to see a less central development. The building is vast and imposing but I found it rather hard to enjoy. A lot of space was given over to Bruce Lee and film memorabilia. The section on ceramics was more to my taste.

I am not a fan of Bruce Lee but this exhibition lets you find out more about him. As a martial artist, I was surprised he wrote quite a bit as well but the bad thing about this exhibition is that you can't take photos. You can take photos at the Cantonese opera section but I thought it was pretty... More

HK Heritage Museum is one of the finest museums in HK, located in Tai Wai, bit walkable distance from Tai Wai MTR, i was really fascinated by the building structure itself , with a grandeur statue of Bruce Lee near the entrance and two large Ceramic Chinese flower vase with intricate paintings . The museum offers workshops and cultural programs... More

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....
