Since free admission was included in our Big Bus ticket, we decided to go to the Maritime Museum and were extremely pleased. The museum traces the maritime history of China from antiquity to the 20th century and is inclusive of maritime law and lore around the world. The museum is divided into 3 "decks" with vivid displays and explanations in... More

We went to this museum the second day we in Hong Kong. This is a very detailed museum that contains a lot of information on ships and shipping. It cost us $15 HK as the seniors age was 60 years. The museum is located on the pier that is right beside the Star ferry. It was fun to watch these... More

As Hong Kong locals, we had a fascinating visit to this well designed, nicely procured museum - much to our surprises! Apart from a wide spread of maritime artefacts which are expected . The museum contained interesting exhibits on the coastal development of Hong Kong including sea trade which formed the backbone of Hong Kong's status as the world's trading... More

Worth a visit but not a must see. It is a terrific repository of maritime history and there are some amazingly crafted miniatures of different junk boats throughout history. Has a good exhibit on the development of Victoria Harbour, a short film on cargo shipping. Has an excellent view of the Kowloon side of the Harbour. A great value for... More

There are a lot of ship models and related exhibits shown here, some of which you can see the effort being put in to make it. Try to spend 2 hours if possible to best enjoy all the exhibits on display.

We got this as part of the hop-on hop-off tour. Wouldn't be top on my list of to-do's except Hong Kong was built around a history of shipping and the exhibits are actually very good. For example, a Great interactive display of the bridge of a ship on Deck A (at the top) and you really do feel like you... More

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.

Staying in Central

Neighbourhood Profile
Central
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.
