Fireboat Alexander Grantham Exhibition Gallery - Marine Rescue Work in Hong Kong

This museum is actually a fireboat.
Built in the 1950s, this fireboat served the Fire Services Department of Hong Kong for 49 years.
It was considered as the largest in the fleet of fireboats.
The fireboat was once docked at the Victoria Harbour and had taken part in major fire-fighting and rescue operations in Hong Kong waters.
After it was decommissioned in 2002, it was preserved and transformed into a museum.

Apart from the fireboat itself, the museum displays a number of unique firefighting artifacts.
It also offers a lot of information to enhance the understanding of visitors about the marine rescue work in Hong Kong.

The fireboat was called "Alexander Grantham".
It was named after former Hong Kong Governor Sir Alexander Grantham.

The museum, also known as "Fireboat Alexander Grantham Exhibition Gallery", is located in the promenade of Quarry Bay Park.
It is open to public from 10:00am to 6:00pm, on Mondays, Wednesdays to Sundays and Public Holidays.
On Tuesdays, it is closed.
Admission is free.

To get there, take MTR to Tai Koo MTR Station and leave at Exit E1.
