The museum instructs on shipping, ship technology, warfare, and trade of China, the rest of Asia and the Western countries. You can learn about the history of shipping as it affected Hong Kong and about current global trends of trade and shipping in Hong Kong. You'll be instructed about Hong Kong and China's future role in world shipping. The museum includes both permanent and special exhibitions, dynamic displays, educational events and a museum shop.

There are two galleries that display 500 exhibits including ship models, paintings, antiques, and shipping documents. The highlight of the Ancient Gallery is a precious model of a ship that was made in the Han Dynasty 2,000 years ago. The Modern Gallery explores the factors and that have made Hong Kong a maritime success with one of the world's busiest ports.
