Overview

The Hong Kong Maritime Museum (HKMM), opened at Murray House in Stanley in 2005, is a vibrant, cultural institution dedicated to preserving, collecting and displaying objects that tell the story about trade and maritime in Hong Kong and the Pearl River Delta. Since 2013, the Museum has been relocated to the picturesque Victoria Harbour at Central Pier No. 8. An independent, non-profit registered charity, HKMM is supported by the shipping industry, the business community, private individuals and the Hong Kong SAR Government. HKMM houses 15 galleries including a venue space for special exhibitions and events, a resource centre, a roof-top social enterprise café, and a gift shop. HKMM promotes Hong Kong, China and Asia's maritime history and heritage as well as the vital role that ships and the sea play in our past, present and future. It also offers visitors a variety of public programmes including guided tours, workshops, public talks, and school, community and family activities.

Senior admission of HKD 15. three levels takes you on the history of sailing in HK. It wasn't very crowded and the location is great at Pier 8.

Wonderful exhibit that showcases Hong Kong's historic maritime past and present. I particularly liked the exhibit of old ships that may have been used by pirates.

A very intersting and pleasant 90 mins - not a huge museum but this does not indicate that the contents are anything other than excellent. A definite recommend for those who want to sample some of the attractions but don't have much time to spare.

Hong Kong has great museums and the Maritime Museum is no exception. We were lucky enough to see the "Sharks and Humanity" exhibition which tells the story of the human decimation of shark populations through art.

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
