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.

The museum tracks the maritime history of Hong Kong and this part of China and within that scope covers a fair bit of economic-political history as well. The opium wars are obviously covered and I got the impression the British were let off somewhat lightly....More

Received a free ticket with our Big Bus ticket. Glad we went to the museum as it had very interesting exhibits and excellent views across the harbour to Kowloon. The cafe above the museum was also good, especially the outside area.

Not really into maritime history normally, but had some time to kill. Very cheap entry ($30HKD per adult) for somewhere you could wander through slowly and spend an easy 1-2hours, or smash through it in 20-30mins. Plenty of model ships from early Chinese vessels through...More

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
