Very interesting historical information regarding Macau's rich culture. With major temples nearby there is no excuse not to lend this location a visit!

After visiting the temple, we had some time. The Maritime museum charges admission, but if you are over 65 years of age, admission is free. The museum presents the maritime history of Macau through dioramas and exhibits located in a multi-level environment. If you're here, spend a few minutes. Those we spoke to while there enjoyed the experience. Also note:... More

Very nice museum just opposite the famous A-ma temple. Inside you can find anything what boy's soul needs. From map of fishing to the real helm. Go there and be for a while one of those heroes you always want to be.

The last time I was able to go to a museum was eight years ago. So I was really excited to see inside of the museum. The exhibits here explore major themes in the history of the maritime industry in Macau, China & Portugal. They allow tourists to take pictures inside which I think is really nice.

This museum is directly across from the A-Ma temple and gives a glimpse at the various trading countries which came to Macau. The Dutch, French, and Portugese contributed immensely to the development of Macau. Fishing was the primary industry and Macau slated fish (Chinese) is renown worldwide.

We were fortunate to have a friend in Macau who invited us out and took us around all over, when asked if I wished to see the Maritime Museum I had little or no expectations, I was blown away by the comprehensive depiction of both western and eastern maritime history with scale models of just about every genre of ancient...

Get yourself some culture while in Macau. Nice break from the shouting masses inside the hotel gambling halls. No crowds, quiet, historical relics and some nice knots too. Educational for the kids and adults will also appreciate the history of Macau.

It just located next to Ah Ma Temple. We particularly enjoyed the various model ships of historical Chinese and Portuguese design and as well as the models of more model vessels found throughout the Maritime Museum. Towards the end of the museum there are some aquariums with various fish that are worth a quick look.
