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.

We sort of fell upon this museum. What a great display for only a few dollars. Would highly recommend to anyone with a passing interest or more of things maritime.

The Maritime Museum is a great (reasonably little in size) museum which is easy to navigate and doesn't give you information overload. The floors are well spaced out and the exhibits are accompanied by informative background. The museum covers a lot of HK's maritime heritage...More

Advertised well though a bit hard to find stepping off the ferry. I loved the history and know most the items they had on display since I was a US Merchant Marine. I have been back four times and plan to visit again.

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
