  • 博物館介紹了香港海事發展的變遷,建築設計一共三層樓高,其中一層可看到整個維港,可說是別有用心的設計。博物館地點便位於天星小輪中環站旁邊,內有模擬駕駛室體驗船長航行的過程,有專人解說及操作。用心逛完整個館大約需時3小時,這裡門票不貴,非常值得再訪。  more »

  • Nice and interesting for people that like the ocean. Additional explanations can be valuable for some exhibits. I spent almost 5 hours from bottom to top - ending is at top.
  • Good museum, very interesting and well laid out, and the air conditioning gave a welcome respite!
  • Excellent museum!! It was actually much more informative and well organized than I expected. There was a lot of information and I could have spent a few more hours if I didn't have another obligation. I recommend, even if you are not a fan of Maritime history, you will surely learn interesting facts about Hong Kong.
  • The lower floor is by far the best. For those interested in reading the details: Good artifacts but inconsistent displays, which sometimes get confused over what the naming convention should be (Canton versus Guangzhou, Pekin versus Beijing, &c.). Slightly unnecessary bias in some of the more speculative captions. Feels a little disjointed and 'too many cooks have spoiled the broth' in the design and authorship of the displays.
  • Decently curated museum for the most part, but their Hong Kong and I (or a similar name) exhibit is fantastic as it tells the story of Hong Kong through goods and products used/traded by Hong Kongers over the years. Small exhibit, that will take you about 2 hours if you read everything, and has lots of interactive displays. Great for kids and history geeks.
