The Hong Kong Maritime Museum can be found on the ground floor of Murray House.
The Hong Kong Maritime Museum can be found on the ground floor of Murray House. It is a small but deceptively intriguing museum, split into two halves. The first half demonstrates the development and evolution of ship design in China through exquisitely constructed wooden models. The second half also uses models to demonstrate the development of Hong Kong as a maritime port. It does not take long to get around the entire museum, but if you find yourself in Stanley it is absolutely worth a look.
