The rather amazing Bruce Lee exhibition at the Heritage Museum in Shatin, a bit odd that it is in such an offbeat location but worth the effort not just for Bruce Lee but all the other "stuff" on display - highly recommended.
I grew up with Bruce Lee and was in Hong Kong when he died in 1973...for a long time there has been talk of a permanent Bruce Lee Museum but continued family squabbles related to intellectual property rights have meant this has not come to pass so all credit to the Heritage Museum for putting together an astounding Bruce Lee exhibit which will be "on" for the next 5 years!!
You have to book a slot online (which is easy) and turn up at the right time and right day, pay your HK$10 (yes, only HK$10!) and enjoy the show... I was there with Alison and Alec, Alec is a huge Bruce Lee fan and he was like a kid in a candy shop!
The exhibit is top quality and well worth the effort to get there. Yahoo!
- sadly you are NOT allowed to take photo's of the Bruce Lee exhibits.
The Heritage Museum is itself very much worth exploring, see images below... I will be back to do some more exploring when I have some free time.
- you are allowed to take NON FLASH photo's at the other exhibits
One other minor point, it can take about an hour to get there from Central / TST on the MTR involving changes at Mongkok, Kowloon Tong and Tai Wai - the end stop is Che Kung Temple Station and from there it is about a 10 minute walk.

I do personal walking tours around Hong Kong, I am on the streets every day and I have a somewhat interesting perspective of this wonderful city I have called my home for 37 years. My private walking tours are perfect for visitors who want a detailed overview of Hong Kong prior to exploring on their own and for people who are only here for a day or two who want to make the most of their limited time here.
Many clients book me for their first full day in Hong Kong, they get to see the best that Hong Kong has to offer + a crash course on our wonderful public transport system and then they go exploring for the rest of their stay armed with step by step instructions and recommendations from me....
I am available at very short notice, I get many last minute bookings and may well be available even if you arrive in Hong Kong without making plans! so please check my calendar, if it says I am free then I am available to do a tour!! Simply send me a message for a prompt reply
...oh, and if you book a tour then you are booking a tour with me, I do not employ other guides.
