    Lots of great information on both historical and modern shipping. I learned quite a bit. Neat to see pottery though the years too!

    Hong Kong's maritime history is very well presented at this wonderful museum. Don't take any photos as it is not allowed. However the exhibits and galleries contain everything you need to know about maritime history. Get here by the Star Ferry, a bus to the Central (Ferry Piers) or just walk from Central. It is also very close to the Hong Kong Observation Wheel.
