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. Don’t let its unassuming exterior deter you from entering this interactive museum – there are more than 1,000 artefacts on display, all arranged in 15 hands-on exhibits and interesting galleries.

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.
