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.

As Hong Kong locals, we had a fascinating visit to this well designed, nicely procured museum - much to our surprises! Apart from a wide spread of maritime artefacts which are expected . The museum contained interesting exhibits on the coastal development of Hong Kong including sea trade which formed the backbone of Hong Kong's status as the world's trading... More

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. Has an excellent view of the Kowloon side of the Harbour. A great value for... More

There are a lot of ship models and related exhibits shown here, some of which you can see the effort being put in to make it. Try to spend 2 hours if possible to best enjoy all the exhibits on display.

We got this as part of the hop-on hop-off tour. Wouldn't be top on my list of to-do's except Hong Kong was built around a history of shipping and the exhibits are actually very good. For example, a Great interactive display of the bridge of a ship on Deck A (at the top) and you really do feel like you... More

This is a fairly new attraction and is well worth spending a few hours exploring. It provides a good history of the area for the adults and there are a number of interactive things for the kids, including a bridge (of a ship) simulator, which I think costs extra but looked like fun.

Adults $30 HKD, Children $15 HKD. Set over 3 floors, great exhibits, many are interactive (for children and adults alike), covers all of the history of the HK maritime and a significant portion of global maritime. Well worth the money and good for 2 hours visit.

The Maritime Museum is on the waterfront on HK island, with awesome views of Kowloon and HK island. Went there for the annual China in Print exhibition on books. Next door was an exhibit of fabulous paintings on Colonial HK and China. Go there to enjoy the exhibits, the view and the nice restaurants.

Staying in Central

Neighbourhood Profile
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 quiet, hidden gems. Nestled between office towers are wet markets and some of the city’s oldest restaurants dating back to the 1960s. Feeling a bit overwhelmed? Retreat from the crowds by exploring beautifully restored historical buildings and even a green oasis of botanical gardens.
