Hong Kong Maritime Museum

Interactive Museum in Central Hong Kong

The Hong Kong Maritime Museum details the rich heritage of Hong Kong’s trade and maritime history, from the early days of trade with China right up to the present day. To help bring this interesting story to life, more than 1,000 artefacts are on display. With the help of these objects you can better appreciate the vital importance of trade in making the self-proclaimed ‘World City’ what it is today.

A great attraction for history buffs, there are fifteen different sections within the museum split over three floors. Sections cover the establishment of a port in the Pearl River Delta, early trade with China, the opium wars, British colonialization, and right up to the modern tax-free trading port that still sees Hong Kong rank as one of the busiest and most profitable ports in the world. Sections on oceanography and ship design are also made more accessible with the use of artefacts and interactive models.

Following a renovation in 2015, the displays are modern and well laid-out, with descriptions in English and Chinese. Every section of the museum has ‘hands-on’ exhibits, which will keep the whole family entertained at least for a couple of hours, although you could spend longer. Plus, the view of Victoria Harbour out of the second and third storey windows adds an added relevance to everything you see. There is a cafe and souvenir shop on site and IFC Mall is just across the road with plenty of restaurants and dining options.

Hong Kong’s importance as a trading hub through the ages can’t be overstated and the Hong Kong Maritime Museum does an excellent job of demonstrating its significance.

Find the Hong Kong Maritime Museum above Pier 8 of the Central Ferry Pier. Hong Kong Station is the closest MTR subway although it’s easy to walk from Central Station too.
