Museum is centrally located. Takes about two hours to walk through. There's probably something for everyone-adults and children alike-. @ $30 for a regular ticket it is moderately priced.

If it's raining or cold it's a lovely peaceful place to visit. So much information & history. Little boys & (big boys ) will love all of the boats on display. Toilets are clean. You can take photos inside.

A museum that start with the history of boating in China, then shipping in Hong Kong and finally shipping in general.

We spent around two hours here in the museum, which offers some great views of the harbour. It offers a fascinating insight into the history, including the more recent political war surrounding land reclamation issues. Well worth the visit and very cheap as well.

Well worth a visit with lots of interesting and educational exhibitions. Try loading containers onto a ship. It is more difficult than it looks. Interesting case study of the Rich Harvest incident off Drake Island.

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
