This was ok but I wouldn't really recommend it. I was expecting a lot more given the maritime history of Kong Kong. It was not that interesting. The Hong Kong history museum is much better!

I was expecting more in the way of exhibits. It's still interesting and worthwhile as a part of a walking tour of the area

A great way to spend a morning or afternoon, especially if the weather isn't very good. Lots of models of ships throughout the years. The museum is handy for combining with other attractions.
