Overview

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.

oh sure they had some really nice reproductions of early junks, but nothing about propulsion systems, or anything mechanical. Lots of amusements for the kids. Nice spot for pictures out the big windows into the bay - if it's not gloomy out...

I came here because I am into ships and all things nautical. It was an interesting place to visit. They close at 5:30pm. Whole tour takes around 30 minutes. Goes from the oldest to the most modern in shipping. I would come here again.

This museum features many well-preserved artifacts and models. A child or teenager might find this place boring. But an adult would enjoy this museum. Very convenient as it is right next to the star ferry pier.

I did a flying visit of about an hour to this interesting museum located on several floors and would have liked a little longer. How a previous reviewer described it as 'boring' is beyond me, as I would have liked a longer visit. Indeed it...More

This is well worth a visit to see how the waterways have developed during time and the amount of cargo now shipped through Hong Kong. Some beautiful pictures are for sale including some of the old airport that went between buildings

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
