The special exhibition Maritime Crossroads: Millennia of Global Trade in Hong Kong is also open on the two Family Fun Days before it closes on 12 August 2021. Organised and curated by the Hong Kong Maritime Museum, this exhibition displays two parallel yet highly connected narratives. The first examines the maritime stories of Hong Kong, whilst the second examines maritime interactions between Hong Kong, South China, East Asia, and the rest of the world. 

The exhibition is generously supported by the Maritime and Aviation Training Fund, Transport and Housing Bureau HKSAR. The general loans came from Antiquities and Monuments Office, HKSAR; Art Museum, The Chinese University of Hong Kong; University Museum and Art Gallery, The University of Hong Kong; Zhuhai Museum; as well as prominent local collectors and the Museum collection. Digital exhibits from Museu do Oriente in Lisbon are also featured.
