  • The museum showcases a brief history of Hong Kong from sea trade/naval point of view. The exhibits are well organized, and everything has English translation so it’s easy to follow. When I was there i...  more »
  • Compared to the Sboll Museum of the Sea, the Hong Kong Maritime Museum has a low sense of authenticity, and the exhibits and the rules are not comparable to the former, but if it is a good thing for maritime special love, the loop can still be seen.

  • 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.
  • A surprisingly nice museum for only 30 HKD! We spent more time here than expected (2+ hours) and learned a lot about Hong Kong's history from the exhibits.
  • We originally came for the Sharks and Art exhibition only but was surprised by the collection and info that were exhibited here. It showed a full maritime history from the time Colonial rule started, to sea trade, pirates, world war to recreational water sports. You can easily spend 2-3 hours there if you browse bit by bit. Big thumbs up!
  • Excellent place for boat lovers, good view of harbor, friendly staff, usually is quiet and uncrowded
  • Very In Depth, for 30 HKD, it certainly is worth it, abundant in history and displays, the artwork dedicated to sharks are also very nice.

Where to stay in Hong Kong

Head to Tsim Sha Tsui for the main tourist section of Hong Kong, where it's easy to find reasonably priced accommodations to suit your particular requirements, with more expensive hotels closer to the water and side streets offering budget hostels. You can also consider Hong Kong Island, which offers easy links to the mainland via its ferry and train lines. Chain hotels sit in the northern section of the island, where luxury and budget options remain available.
