I wanted to visit the museum to see a model of a ferry my uncle used to Captain. However I was interested to discover so much through the exhibits. Very well presented but we probably needed another couple of hours to take it all in...More

The top floor of the museum has a ship simulator. You can try your skill at navigating around Victoria Harbour. Very entertaining for the kids. The entries are timed. Inquire at the front desk. The display of ancient maps is a highlight of the museum.

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....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
