We got off the Star ferry and just happened to see the sign post for the Maritime Museum. We didn't surface for 2 hours and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. There is a whole level children would absolutely love with interactive exhibits for them and 'big' children...More

The Maritime museum is a gem. The displays and organization provide rich insights into the development and challenges faced by this fascinating city and port. There are few better ways to learn about the engagement between East and West than this museum.

Ok to spend time in if weather not good! Really set out for adults, don't think children would be very interested. Obviously people who are into the history of boats/ships would find it fascinating.

oh sure they had some really nice reproductions of early junks, but nothing about propulsion systems, or anything mechanical. Lots of amusements for the kids. Nice spot for pictures out the big windows into the bay - if it's not gloomy out...

I came here because I am into ships and all things nautical. It was an interesting place to visit. They close at 5:30pm. Whole tour takes around 30 minutes. Goes from the oldest to the most modern in shipping. I would come here again.

This museum features many well-preserved artifacts and models. A child or teenager might find this place boring. But an adult would enjoy this museum. Very convenient as it is right next to the star ferry pier.

Central
When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies
with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The
area widely known as Central is the major financial
hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up
to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open
late into the night and there just happens to be a
street party every weekend. Although everything seems
to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of
