Central Pier 8, Maritime Museum – Hong Kong, China

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 current piers were all built in the 1990s and early 2000s due to the Airport Core Programme, under which the Central Reclamation was built to provide land for Hong Kong station, the terminus of the new airport railway. The previous piers had to be demolished to make way for the newly reclaimed land. The first set of new piers opened on 9 May 1995.
