As its name, HK Heritage Museum. Interesting place to visit if you have enough time because the museum locate in Shatin area which may take more times for transit especially if you stay in famous area like Hong Kong side or TST. For MRT you can go to Che Kung Temple station and walk for a while to the museum.... More

Currently has a free admission exhibition on the life of legendary martial artist Bruce Lee till 2018. A great gallery of his personal possessions, photos and artifacts. A must-see for Bruce's fans!

Museum is common in every country. This museum is special because you can bring your experience and memory home. The gift shop is like a library of collectibles around the world. The padt and present thematic exhibitions related merchandises can be found there. From Russian royal family faberge eggs to ancient Chinese royal ceramic, these merchandises are so creative that...

The museum is renovating certain parts of its exhibit space. We still are glad we went and we enjoyed our visit. Free admission. The Bruce Lee documentary (movie) is very well made and informative. Easy walk with excellent signage from the Che Kung Temple station.

I am fascinated by history and the collection of ceramics/pottery from over the past 15 or so centuries really caught my interest as did the Hong Kong history section. Probably not for everyone especially if you wished to see "flashy" exhibits with a lot of bells and whistles..

What a treat to visit this museum and check out heaps of private collection and information on the life of the worlds most famous King Fu Master. It was extremely informative and was really well presented.

This is an excellent museum, with an eclectic mix of historical(pottery from ancient times) and the (relatively) current, with an excellent exhibition of Bruce Lee and his importance to modern HK culture and its now-famous movie industry. Entrance to the museum is free-and it's well worth your time; definitely visit.

The visit to this museum was not worth our time and we only spent about half an hour there. The main exhibition was Bruce Lee and the wedding ceremonies. There was a documentary showing in the theatre and we only stayed for about five minutes as the full documentary lasts about an hour and a half and it was of... More

A nice building. A children's fun area that is well intended, but a lot of broken exhibits. Excellent exhibition on weddings in the forbidden city, but extremely busy. Main exhibition on village life in the New Territories was closed for renovation until the summer. Bruce Lee exhibition ok but a lot of fighting for little kids. Recommend to check which... More

I was in Sha Tin anyway for the Ten Thousand Buddha Monastery and thought I'd drop by. Was positively surprised. The Bruce Lee exhibition is a must if you are interested in one of Hong Kong's most famous sons. Many really interesting exhibits like handwritten poems and letters, merchandise, original costumes including the iconic yellow jump suit from "Game of... More
