  • Pretty boring museum imo. Lots of models of ships and not much else. You'd need to be really into you Hong Kong history to get a kick out of this place.  more »

  • 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.
  • small exhibition about the maritime history of the Hongkong area. Visit when you've done everything else.
  • A great experience to visit. It is a good exhibition and fun interaction for everyone.
  • Relatively small measure, exhibits and displays were all well labeled and extremely informational. Hong Kong's maritime history was well covered. Museum was very clean and well laid out.

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.
