The museum features a wide selection of exhibits, many of them interactive which is great news for parents, and a huge bonus is their Children’s Discovery Gallery designed for kids 4-10 years old with eight play zones where they won’t catch on that they’re actually learning a thing or two. The younger set shouldn’t miss the Hong Kong Toy Story which features a... More

My wife and I took our 4 year old and 6 year old to visit the Louvre exhibit. We also popped upstairs to visit the Bruce Lee exhibit. It was $60 HKD for a family of four. Great value. The exhibits were really well done. There is a cafe downstairs serving food. It was heaving. This is a great place... More

This museum is incorrectly titled. 'Museum of Modern Culture' or 'Museum of 20th Century Iconography' would be much better, as the two stand-out exhibitions were on Bruce Lee and the illustrator/author Jin Tong and sat a little at odds with the others, interesting as they all were! The Bruce Lee show in particular was fascinating.

Located in the New Territories, the guidebook said it was one of HK's best, but we are not so sure. Sha Tin was one of the many "satellites" that had been created in the greater HK area, consisting of numerous high-rise apartment towers built around an MTR station, with the various public facilities necessary to support the population. This included... More

Anyone who loves culture, art etc., should give this place a visit, whether the exhibitions are permanent or transitory, free or paid. I visited during March 2017 and was fortunate enough to catch the Bruce Lee exhibition. Been a fan of his work as a martial artist, actor and person. A real insight into his life seeing the exhibits and... More

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

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.
