As all the museums in Macau seem to be, this is not a big place. It's for some great info in there, and my 3.5yo loved it. We only spent about 45mins in there - that's about as much time as he could do - It's geared up for older children/adults more than younger kids. The models are amazeballs though!... More

This museum is located right next to the delightful Ah Ma Temple and the two together make for a pleasant day. The museum is the sort of place where you can breeze quickly through, or stop to read each exhibit--an unexpected plus is that there is an excellent brochure in 3 languages to go along with each major exhibit. It... More

One of the main attractions for the tourists visiting Macau. Amazing collection of different types of boats, ships, peripherals etc exhibited. It has three levels where different interesting exhibits are seen. It was very educative and informative too. Rtn.J.Ganesh

I thought I would learn a bit more about Macau and its maritime links and this was the place to visit. It isn't the most modern of museums, in fact it does have that old school, 80s-type museum feel to it but it still works well. All sorts of historic and technical accounts are well-presented, exhibits are very engaging and... More

Maritime Museum at Barra Square is the eighth and final stop on the MGTO 'Crossroads of China and Portugal' walking route. This walking trail starts at Senado Square and follows a path to Barra Square, taking in a handful of stops to see some of the most impressive Chinese and Portuguese locations and historic buildings that form the UNESCO World...

This is a very pleasant museum, with ship models showing early Chinese inventions such as using human rowers to power a large paddle boat. Also a lot of information about the history of Macau, its relations with Japan and a model of the city which explains its development (Macau intra and extra muros, the failed Dutch invasion) and makes the...

Considering that the vast majority of artifacts were destroyed by the US Navy during World War Two, this museum does a nice job of portraying Macau's maritime heritage.

This museum was great. It was super interactive and had lots to share. We noticed a school trip and all the students were having a grand time. I loved the knot-station and the star-gazing area. It was only $10 patacas to get in and it was nearby all the other sites to see in Macau. I highly recommend this place.
