  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Interesting displays, history plus contemporary info like maritime archeology, plenty of good descriptions and...a SIMULATOR. It was awesome, still not sure if I am on land or on a boat!
  • Relocation and expansion have turned this into one of the city’s strongest museums, with 15 well-curated galleries detailing over 2000 years of Chinese maritime history and the development of the Port of Hong Kong. Exhibits include ceramics from China’s ancient sea trade, shipwreck treasures and old nautical instruments. A painted scroll depicting piracy in China in the early 19th century is one of Hong Kong's most important historical artefacts, and, like the rest of the museum, a real eye-opener.
