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.

There is nothing to do here. Unless you like seeing models of ferries, don't go here. Also, the location is un-convinient.

The museum is too small and boring. There is nothing to see unless you like models of ferries and location is very un-convinient.

Not sure what to expect from a private museum, but I must say that this is a pleasant surprise. Not large compared to many maritime museum overseas (which typically boasts actual ships to boot), and no earth-shaking artifacts/objects. Instead, lots of nice models, interesting exhibits,...More

An extremely good presentation of Hong Kong's maritime industry through the years. Definitely worth the visit if you're interested in this sort of thing, as present day Hong Kong has greatly influenced by its maritime past.

Excellent museum situated close to ferry terminals. Very interesting history of Hong Kong, particularly maritime information, but other history also. Well worth a visit.

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
