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.

Free entrance with our big red bus tickets and so much better than expected. Display of artefacts very good and stuffed full of really quite interesting stuff. Found floor lettering a bit confusing, especially when tried to find the cafe. This is worth the effort,...More

Well laid out and spacious, over three floors. I found the 'deck C' historical info the most interesting although very dark. I was flagging rather after this floor. Not a bad way to spend a few hours though but wouldn't really recommend unless you are...More

Quite a good museum to stop at and spend some time exploring when you're near to the pier. The displays are good and there are lots of interactive screens to keep you busy with great views of the harbour.

Most people would pass this by, however it is free with your Big Bus ticket so go and have a look. Terrific hands on exhibits including operating a container loader. Kept our three 10-14YO very busy and happy for a couple of hours

In excess of the view being positioned almost on the water of Victoria Harbor, the museum has a lot to offer the nautical interested person. What makes it especially interesting is the fact it does not dwell with history but offers and insight to modern...More

I enjoy visiting museums but I wasn't sure of this one, considering it's mostly about ships. I was pleasantly surprised - the historic perspective provided is truly amazing. It was a fun, informative experience, and I'd definitely recommend it.

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
