A very intersting and pleasant 90 mins - not a huge museum but this does not indicate that the contents are anything other than excellent. A definite recommend for those who want to sample some of the attractions but don't have much time to spare.

I love looking at the maritime history of the countries I visit. I would have been a pirate. This museum is great. It has a number of floors and covers China's Dynasties to current time. China didn't acknowledge pirates with the restrictions that other countries...More

Hong Kong has great museums and the Maritime Museum is no exception. We were lucky enough to see the "Sharks and Humanity" exhibition which tells the story of the human decimation of shark populations through art.

Really worth a trip if you have any interest in boats and their place in history. China was historically a very strong maritime nation, though the design of Chinese boats is strikingly different from European boats. Some interesting history of the first factories in the...More

I'm sorry to say, but museums in Hong Kong are generally not very good, they're small and static, with limited interaction. And this is unfortunately not one of the better ones either. Sure, there are some well made ship models that might be interesting to...More

This place charges HK$30 per head and consider the fact it is a non-government operate museum and the content, I would say it is worth going. It will be a fun activity for adults and kids. It has exhibits relating to marine history, sea trade,...More

Some good displays and everything in English, charts Hong Kong maritime history from the earliest recorded history to the present. Fairly interesting but hardly mind blowing, you could see it all in a little over an hour. On the plus side it’s only HK$30 to...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
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
