  • It would have been an average museum if it were not for its Bruce Lee exhibit. The exhibit includes a 1-hour documentary on his life. The documentary raised my curiosity n helped me better understand other parts of the exhibit. Another highlight is the Cantonese Opera exhibit. The history n behind-the-scene preparation are well summarised. Display of dazzling costumes makes one wonder how popular it must have been to justify such lavish production.
  • Great varied collections and some beautiful artefacts, especially enjoyed the jade carvings. The Bruce Lee exhibition was fun and learned a lot. Only slight negatives were 2/3 of the exhibits were closed for renovation and the restaurant is very expensive. Free admission on a Wednesday.
  • Nice exhibitions. Big exhibition of Bruce Lee Kung Fu great actor that sadly died at age 32 but changed the world view of Chinese and Kung Fu marshal arts.
  • A fascinating place to learn more about Hong Kong's cultural landscape, everything from Cantonese opera to modern design and the Chinese arts. Free Cantonese opera is available every Saturday afternoon for the interested (no subtitles though!), and is a great way to past some time. The ongoing Bruce Lee exhibition also has an immense trove of information and media on the legendary figure - a must-visit!
  • Bruce Lee exhibit is a really fantastic mainstay. Not sure why they make it so difficult to buy his movies there. I would have been an easy sell for the box set. The Claude Monet exhibit was parent while I was there. Very classy, well positioned, and even interactive with an iPad game to collaboratively make a monet scene. If this exhibit is any indication of the type of showcase this museum puts together, then there heritage museum is a must visit.
