  • We spent about 3 hours in here all up, and highly recommend this museum for its historical value. Displays are interpreted well, and some of the pieces are real treasures. Because it is Maritime Safet...  more »
  • Taking the ticket to the big bus tour pier number 8, you have an entry includes to visit the Museum, which is very interesting and relaxing, no noise and also a nice view from the inside. It is very beautiful models of boat and we learn a lot of things on Hong Kong, it takes 30 minutes to walk around.

  • 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.
