Located within a wooded setting just out of view of Sha Tin's towering housing complexes, the Hong Kong Heritage Museum is patterned after the traditional "si he yuan"; a compound of harmoniously blended houses built around a central courtyard.
But people don't just come here for the quaint architecture; the extensive museum is divided into 12 exhibition galleries, each a treasure trove of relics that express the history, culture and arts of early Hong Kong and the nearby South China region.
Notable features include a collection of beautiful Chinese paintings by the acclaimed artist Zhao Shao'ang, and a comprehensive and colorful exhibition tracing the development of Cantonese opera.
And in collaboration with the Bruce Lee Foundation in the United States, the Hong Kong Heritage Museum has organised an exhibition that looks at Bruce Lee as not only a film star and martial artist, but also cultural phenomenon. The exhibition has more than 600 invaluable items of Bruce Lee memorabilia provided by local and overseas collectors and organisations. Visitors will be able to gain a greater insight into his achievements and contributions as well as his significance in popular culture.
