  • 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 ...  more »
  • Museum Pier so good vantage point. From ancient times to the present day maritime history may exhibit carefully. Number of exhibits are too small, dimly lit room is kinda sorry. I felt the subtleties of history and to the reconquest in England from Japan occupation "liberation", not the "Star" as one put it.

  • Hong Kong Maritime Museum is a non-profit educational institution funded by the international shipping community and the government in Hong Kong. It is located at Central Pier 8, Hong Kong. The museum was reopened to the public in February 2013. The museum illustrates how China, Asia and the West have contributed through the ages to the development of boats, ships, maritime exploration and trade, and naval warfare. While concentrating on the South China coast and its adjacent seas, it also covers global trends and provides a comprehensive account of Hong Kong's growth and development as a major world port and maritime centre. The museum includes semi-permanent and special exhibitions, interactive displays, educational events, café and a museum shop
  • Lots of old historic silverware and miniatures of old ships. It’s a good place for kids and families. It charges 30 HKD for admission per one person.
  • If you enjoy history, you’ll enjoy this place. I found it very informative and an easy place for a self guided tour.
  • Really high quality museum, one of my favorite parts of Hong Kong. So many amazing and intricate model ships and local history.
  • The Pirate's Life. To have lived during the days of wind power ships. Where the strong took what they wanted. They were their own man. All their enemies unless profits were to be made.
