Why Hong Kong Heritage Museum is special ?

The Hong Kong Heritage Museum is located in Sha Tin (New Territories). Under the umbrella of the Leisure and Cultural Services Department, the Hong Kong Heritage Museum presents a unique mix of history, art and culture in a great variety of programmes that cater for the wide-ranging interests of the public.


Built after the traditional “Si He Yuan” style, this building stands in sharp contrast to the high rising skyscrapers and housing estates.

What to explore at Hong Kong Heritage Museum?

Southwest of Sha Tin town centre, this spacious, high-quality museum gives a peek into local history and culture. Designed both to entertain and to enlighten, this lively and informative exhibitions and activities offer a kaleidoscopic array of cultural and educational experiences for visitors. Highlights include a children's area with interactive play zones, the New Territories Heritage Hall with mock-ups of traditional minority villages, the Cantonese Opera Heritage Hall , where you can watch old operas with English subtitles, and an elegant gallery of Chinese art. Lately, the big draw is a semi-permanent Bruce Lee exhibit , with some 600 items of the Kung Fu star's memorabilia on display until 2018.

When one thinks of words, things or names associated with Hong Kong, the name Bruce Lee would be on most people's lists, together with "shopping" and "suits" and "Suzie Wong" Ironically, apart from a statue of Bruce Lee along the Tsim Sha Tsui waterfront, there is no other place in Hong Kong that honours one of its most important sons. Could it be that Bruce Lee was born in San Francisco? Or is buried in Seattle? The Hong Kong Heritage Museum is the only place in Hong Kong where a collection of items that once belonged to Bruce Lee, including personal photographs, letters, drawings and other mementos are on exhibit for the general public to learn about the man behind the legend. Aside from the Bruce Lee exhibit which runs until 2018 only, there are revolving exhibits on other subjects that follow the concept of heritage - remembering where HK came from and understand where it is going. Take bus 182 from Central and alight after the Tai Wai MTR station, HKD16. Or take the MTR to Che Kung Temple Station HKD16.50. Entrance fee to the museum is only HKD10
