Presented in a series of 25 curated sections, the Hong Kong Maritime Museum is proud to celebrate the transformation of the city in its newest exhibition, “Hong Kong’s Maritime Miracle: The Story of our City.”
Tracing the legacy of Hong Kong’s tenacious rebuilding and recovery since the damage of World War I to becoming the fully fledged global maritime hub it is today, the story follows key developmental eras like post-war recuperation in the late 1940s, Hong Kong’s golden days of industrialisation that followed, containerisation in the 1970s, growth in trade, and even shows a case for the future.
Drawing upon new immersive technology like VR, interactive learning stations, as well as a dazzling emotional tale told through an anthology of short films by Heiward Mak, the various strands of Hong Kong’s maritime culture are brought to life.
Covering the hottest new eats, the best places to play, offbeat takes on local culture, and so much more, Localiiz is every Hongkonger’s destination for how to live a well-rounded life in our vibrant city. Why the strange spelling? Well, Localiiz is designed to be your “local eyes”—and for that, you need two i’s.
