Why not cool off in the AC during the hotter periods and explore the 45,000 square foot Maritime Museum! This vibrant, cultural museum is devoted to preserving, collecting, and displaying objects that tell the story about trade and maritime in Hong Kong and the Pearl River Delta.
Children and adults will appreciate the ship models, interactive displays, and stellar views of Victoria Harbour. Four levels of galleries (Deck A, B, C, and rooftop) display how Hong Kong developed from a fishing village to a thriving world city.
Make sure to head to Deck B and check out the display on Fun on the Water, Sounds of the Sea, as well as The Underwater World. Click here to for more information.
