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.

This museum is probably the best private museum in Hong Kong which is located by the Star ferry. 香港海事博物館最近的活動很多,也有了新的項目,這是一個適合帶著一家大小來呆個半日的地方,雖然要收門票,但是花一點點錢絕對是值得的。

We enjoyed our time at the museum and found the exhibits informative and interesting. The models were well made and my family learned a lot about pirates and modern shipping in the hour and a half we spent there.

The exhibits include three floors, each well-developed in telling the maritime development of Hong Kong from early Chinese vessels to the beginnings of Hong Kong and the current seaport. Worth a visit.

My son enjoyed this museum very much, It is spread out over three floors and covers all aspects of Asian maritime and modern shipping. Be aware that the ship simulator only runs in the afternoon so we unfortunately could not try that out.

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
