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.

This is a fairly new attraction and is well worth spending a few hours exploring. It provides a good history of the area for the adults and there are a number of interactive things for the kids, including a bridge (of a ship) simulator, which I think costs extra but looked like fun.

Adults $30 HKD, Children $15 HKD. Set over 3 floors, great exhibits, many are interactive (for children and adults alike), covers all of the history of the HK maritime and a significant portion of global maritime. Well worth the money and good for 2 hours visit.

The Maritime Museum is on the waterfront on HK island, with awesome views of Kowloon and HK island. Went there for the annual China in Print exhibition on books. Next door was an exhibit of fabulous paintings on Colonial HK and China. Go there to enjoy the exhibits, the view and the nice restaurants.

You don't necessarily have to be interested in maritime history to enjoy this place. It gives an in depth story of how travelling by sea grew in Hong Kong and what an important port it was and still remains for world trade. Definitely worth a visit if you have a couple of hours free, and great views of Victoria Bay... More

Very conveniently located adjacent to the Star Ferry. Well worth spending an hour or two there. Exhibits range from early Chinese exploration to modern container shipping, and give a good understanding of the maritime history of Hong Kong. As might be expected, there are some excellent ship models. A simulated ship's bridge exhibit is available, but reservations are required and... More

Although we have visited HK a few times, we had not visited the Maritime Museum before. We both found it interesting and when my wife's energy started to flag, she was happy to sit at the huge picture window and enjoy watching all the activity in the Harbour. H.K. is an exciting place and is constantly evolving as shown on... More

Staying in Central

Neighbourhood Profile
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 quiet, hidden gems. Nestled between office towers are wet markets and some of the city’s oldest restaurants dating back to the 1960s. Feeling a bit overwhelmed? Retreat from the crowds by exploring beautifully restored historical buildings and even a green oasis of botanical gardens.
