Interesting Exhibits

Small-scale but interesting exhibits make this museum worth a visit for insights into the maritime past upon which Macau's wealth was built.

First time to Maritime Museum in Macau in which it is close to A Ma Temple. We just finished visiting A Ma Temple and went to the Maritime Museum.

The museum is just a stone's throw from the A- Ma temple. It is a small museum which can be covered in less than an hour but the audiovisual presentation on the ground floor provides useful background information on the origins of the temple. Hence my suggestion is that if one can spare the time visit the maritime museum before... More

The Macau Maritime Museum is one of the best museums which I ever saw. There are lot of big exhibits which depicts the creativity and the pain taken to create. Excellent and keep it up. You would need a minimum of 2 hours to at least walk through and see the exhibits of this museum. The nearby A-Ma temple is... More

The Macau Maritime Museum is opposite the A Ma Temple, it's good to find out, many buses go to there. All visitors must buy ticket(except the specific people), I remembered the fee around five to ten patacas, it's not expensive, at the weekend are cheaper. At the ground floor, it showed the history about the origin of A Ma Temple,... More

Really enjoyed the museum - much more then I thought I would. As it is opposite the A-Ma Gao temple it gets some of the coach-loads of tourist, but they come in go on to their cell-phones, wonder around for 5minutes, realise there is no food and leave.

Nice little museum, we came in to escape the heat outside. Found this place to be cute, informative and not expensive -10 MOP per person. Very detailed, so if boats are you're thing you should check it out. Not worth a special trip there in my opinion, it's right next to A- Ma temple so if you're there you might... More

Macau was an important East meets West maritime post for hundreds of years and so has some fascinating maritime history documented in this small but well laid out museum. Fishing was the mainstay of many of Macau's residents for centuries though the fishing industry has just about died out. The museum displays give a good insight into this important area... More

Highly recommend having a lunch at Litoral or L'Orcha restaurant and then walking over and seeing this museum. It is also near A-Ma Temple. The museum provides a nice combination of written historical information as well as model ships.

A superb maritime museum with the best ship and boat models I have ever seen depicting the change in Macau's maritime history. Very cheap entry and mementos also quite reasonably priced. Allow 2 hours to take it all in.
