Le musée maritime de Hong Kong (香港海事博物館, Hong Kong Maritime Museum) est un établissement d'enseignement à but non lucratif financé par la communauté maritime internationale et le gouvernement de Hong Kong. D'abord installé à partir de 2005 à la maison Murray (en) de Stanley, il déménage en 2013 à l'embarcadère 8 de Central.
Il se concentre sur le développement des bateaux, des navires, de l'exploration et du commerce maritimes et de la guerre navale. Tout en se focalisant sur la côte sud de la Chine et ses mers adjacentes, il couvre également les tendances mondiales et rend compte de la croissance maritime de Hong Kong.

Hong Kong Maritime Museum is a non-profit educational institution funded by the international shipping community and the government in Hong Kong. It is located at Central Pier 8, Hong Kong. The museum was reopened to the public in February 2013. The museum illustrates how China, Asia and the West have contributed through the ages to the development of boats, ships, maritime exploration and trade, and naval warfare. While concentrating on the South China coast and its adjacent seas, it also covers global trends and provides a comprehensive account of Hong Kong's growth and development as a major world port and maritime centre. The museum includes semi-permanent and special exhibitions, interactive displays, educational events, café and a museum shop

Lots of old historic silverware and miniatures of old ships. It’s a good place for kids and families. It charges 30 HKD for admission per one person.

If you enjoy history, you’ll enjoy this place. I found it very informative and an easy place for a self guided tour.

The Pirate's Life. To have lived during the days of wind power ships. Where the strong took what they wanted. They were their own man. All their enemies unless profits were to be made.

Worth taking a look and learning about hon Kong history. It's also bigger than I expected.

Really high quality museum, one of my favorite parts of Hong Kong. So many amazing and intricate model ships and local history.

Very nice exhibit albeit the emphasis is more on the modern marine world than the history, but you do get more than just the basics from the first Chinese seafarers to the modern world. A nice place to go if you want to know more about the marine trading hub that HK is.

3 floors of exhibition where you get to see boats from the past to the future. It also covers the freight industry in HK as a transfer hub, there are many hands on demonstrations for everyone to try. I really enjoy the bridge simulation as it is very real.

Got a free ticket just before my 18th birthday. Lots to see and there are a lot of interactive elements. The 2nd floor is definitely an observation deck inside the museum, the view of the Victoria Harbour is absolutely amazing. I learned quite a lot about the maritime history and the gadgets that were use to navigate in the seas.

Unlike Maritime museums in countries like UK, Netherlands and Spain, this Maritime museum is more about shipping than wars. Your can get a great view of the Victoria harbor from the museum.

My experience at the museum is better than expected. I thought it smaller, but it turns out that there are a lot to learn about HK’s maritime history. I spent around 2 hours in the museum. The best thing about it is getting some hand-on experience rather than looking at the objects and reading the labels. It is definitely a learning place. I would try to visit again with my boyfriend next time.

We recently visited the Hong Kong Maritime Museum (HK$30 per adult), which reopened earlier this year at its new location at the Central Ferry Pier (Pier 8) in the Central district on Hong Kong Island. We were quite pleased with the new museum and consider it to be one of the better museum options we have for visitors to Hong Kong. The Hong Kong Maritime Museum includes three levels and 12-13 sections of maritime related exhibitions. Displays are well arranged and laid out. Like other Hong Kong museums, there is adequate text provided for the many items on display and a wide array of things to see and they make good use of monitors where you can learn more about various subject matters on display, found throughout the museum. We also felt the layout of the museum was logical and effective, providing visitors opportunity to make a short and quick visit or to linger for a couple hours, without missing anything or having to back-track at all during their visit. We felt the second and third floors (Section A and B) were more child and family friendly with exhibits that might interest younger members of your group a bit more, while the first floor (Section C) has a more historical maritime theme, featuring some impressive pottery boats from the Han dynasty, model ships representing Chinese ships through the centuries and some fantastic 18th century harbour paintings. A real highlight of this floor was the Canton Presentation Screen (circa 1690) made of eight panels. We also very much enjoyed the Gouache of Keying scroll painting (circa 1847). Section C also featured an interesting section on historic and modern day piracy activity on the high seas. There were further areas were you can learn a bit of the history of the Opium wars and foreign trade activity in and around the Pearl Delta that served to greatly shape modern day Canton Region and Hong Kong. Section C ends with a section featuring the making and history of Victoria Harbour here in Hong Kong that is interesting for those keen to learn a bit about our famous harbour. There is a temporary exhibition on the ground level floor just before you exit the museum. Presently, they are showing photos of very large container ships being built and refurbished. We enjoyed seeing this and found the floor to make very good 'art space', which should make way for very good future temporary exhibitions as well. Lastly, the museum has a cafe and gift shop and the museum is located very near to the Star Ferry, which would make an appropriate add-on activity for those interested in visiting this very good museum. Overall, we enjoyed our recent visit to the Hong Kong Maritime Museum and feel they did a very nice job with the relocation and reopening of this museum from its former home at the Murray House in Stanley. In the end, this is one of the better museums in Hong Kong and one that visitors with an interest in maritime and historical matters will enjoy.

Very nice experience for everyone. You can see many things connected with water. Friendly staff.

A lot of well-built models with background historical stories on-site. Sailing simulation is entertaining. Definitely worth spending 2 to 3 hours wandering in this museum.

Really nice museum, not something I'd go to more than once, but 1 visit to this place is certainly worth it.
