HONG KONG MARITIME MUSEUM

Central Ferry Pier No. 8, Central

 

The Hong Kong Maritime Museum is a vibrant, cultural institution dedicated to preserving, collecting and displaying objects that tell the story about trade and maritime in Hong Kong and the Pearl River Delta. A non-profit registered charity founded in 2003 by members of the Hong Kong Shipowners Association, the Museum opened in September 2005 at Murray House in Stanley and relocated in 2013 to Pier 8, in the heart of the Central Harbour Waterfront. Today the Museum attracts 100,000 visitors annually where across 4,400 square metres more than 1,200 objects are displayed in 13 galleries on three levels.

The idea to form “The Maritime Silk Road Society” originated from the New People’s Party’s visit to Beijing in September 2014 led by Mrs. Regina Ip, Member of the Executive Council and the Legislative Council, Chairperson of New People’s Party and Savantas Policy Institute. During the meeting with officials of the National Development and Reform Commission, Mrs. Ip learned about the “Belt and Road Initiative” , and the principles of peace and cooperation, openness, inclusiveness, mutual learning and mutual benefit underlying this initiative. It did not take Mrs. Ip and other members of the delegation long to appreciate that this strategy has the potential to transform the economic landscape of Asia, and holds great promise for Hong Kong.

LIANG YI MUSEUM

181-199 Hollywood Road, Sheung Wan

 

The four-storey museum is home to one of the world's largest and best-curated collections of Chinese antique furniture, made of the treasured materials huanghuali and zitan, from the Ming and Qing dynasties. Started in the 1980s with many of the earlier pieces purchased right here on Hollywood Road, the collection has grown to over 300 pieces three decades later. Selected pieces have been exhibited in other museums, primarily the National Museum of History in Taiwan. 

The Liang Yi Museum also houses the world's premier collection of bejewelled clutches, compacts and powder boxes. Made in the finest design houses such as Cartier, Boucheron and Van Cleef & Arpels, these necessaries and minaudieres, glittering with precious stones and showing exquisitely detailed craftsmanship, were once a staple of every lady's evening wear. With nearly 400 examples from the late 1880s through to the 1960s, this dazzling collection provides an elegant peek at a bygone era and has been lent out to other museums in the past, including the Palace Museum in Beijing and Goldsmiths Hall in London.
