Fodor's Review

Originally located in Stanley, this museum relocated to the old Hung Hom Star Ferry Pier in 2013. The rich collections explore Hong Kong's 2,000-year maritime history, one of the gems being a 59-foot-long scroll painting called Pacifying the South China Sea, which chronicles the nine-day Battle of Lantau against Hong Kong's most famous pirate, Cheung Po Tsai, in the early 1800s. The scroll has been digitized and transformed into a 360-degree animation experience.
