Owner description: The Hong Kong Maritime Museum (HKMM), opened at Murray House in Stanley in 2005, is a vibrant, cultural institution dedicated to preserving, collecting and displaying objects that tell the story about trade and maritime in Hong Kong and the Pearl River Delta. Since 2013, the Museum has been relocated to the picturesque Victoria Harbour at Central Pier No. 8. An independent, non-profit registered charity, HKMM is supported by the shipping industry, the business community, private individuals and the Hong Kong SAR Government. HKMM houses 15 galleries including a venue space for special exhibitions and events, a resource centre, a roof-top social enterprise café, and a gift shop. HKMM promotes Hong Kong, China and Asia's maritime history and heritage as well as the vital role that ships and the sea play in our past, present and future. It also offers visitors a variety of public programmes including guided tours, workshops, public talks, and school, community and family activities.

Its a really interesting museum to go if you spare a lot of time during your stay in HK. its a really specific themed museum and quite extense display. You might spend a whole afternoon there. Very nicely presented and interactive as well. It also has a nice view of the harbour! All of HK's museums are free on Wednesdays!

There was a very good display on China's maritime history... Lots of stuff I didn't know before... Many of the displays are interactive with iPads available. All the displays are in Chinese and English. At 30 HK dollars, this is a good way to spend some time getting familiar with Hong Kong's interesting past (and the UK's history as the world's first international drug dealer). The displays are more oriented to adults than "kid-friendly".

Spend a couple of hours on pier 8 at the new maritime museum.
If you are interested in boats old and new then this is tbe place for you. The museum used to be on tbe waterfront in Stanley but the new venue is great and ideal to see over the harbour and watch tbe ferries coming and going. Our grandson liked loading tbe cargo ship and also seeing how quick he could sink it.

We had planned to do 2 museums this day, but with so much to see at the Maritime Museum we had to cut the 2nd one short. Well laid out and presented in a logical way.
My favourite thing was seeing a snippet of Dad's ship entering the harbour after the Japanese surrender.
Allow several hours to fully appreciate this aspect of Hong Kong's history.
