Small but good museum

Nice museum with plenty of miniature ships and description of fishermen's life in Macau. Just opposite A Ma's temple so it is worthwhile just to drop by. Only a small entrance fee.

I'm so pleased we visited this museum. It's just across from the Old Temple.

It is beautifully set out. And being over 65 we were admitted free - a very nice surprise!

We learned much about the sea-faring history of Macau and indeed of China itself. The models on display were magnificent and abundant.

This museum is well set out and a pleasure to visit.

A bit out of the way, but worth the effort
Aug 2019
This charming, informative museum is on the far side of Macau, at the end of the advertised route for Historically minded tourists. It is such a cute, yet well informed museum and would be perfect to take children to for an hour or more as there are so many little models, pictures and a really smart aquarium.

As has been said, it looks a little scruffy from the inside but in fact it is well worth a visit. The price was reasonable but I think the gift shop was astonishingly expensive, so save your gifts for the cheaper historic quarter.

Lots of good information and away from the hectic old quarter and the casinos.

Never judge a book, etc....

...and you shouldn’t judge this place based on its outside either: inside is great! Loads of information on Chinese and Portuguese maritime history, including broader topics not related to Macau like the voyages of Zheng He, Vasco da Gama and Magellan. Also plenty on the myths and realities surrounding the founding of Macau. I even liked the gift shop!

Very good speciality museum at Barra Square
Apr 2018 • Solo
The Maritime Museum is the very good museum just across from A-Ma Temple at Barra Square. Here you can explore four floors of exhibitions, displays and information dedicated to local maritime activity and history in Macau.

A museum highlight is the Little A-Ma Theatre which tells the legend of the local goddess for which the famous nearby temple is named. There is an English language version as well as Cantonese and Putunghua. Some very nice model ships are on display and the museum visit ends with a nice aquarium, providing some aquatic life for children to enjoy.

The museum (usually MOP10 per adult) is open from 10am to 6pm daily but closed on Tuesdays. Visitors can make a quick highlight visit in 30 minutes or spend a couple hours at this specialty museum if interested.

Excellent maritime museum
Dec 2018 • Solo
Many things I liked about this museum. Always enjoy diorama's and models of various sorts, and all of these are interesting and well-crafted. Excellent presentations on each floor of Chinese-centric maritime development. Interesting instruments and multiple languages explaining the exhibits. I realise the focus in Macau is on gaming, with a nod to history that might be immediately nearby at Senado Square, but this is a really great resource, and worth a visit for sure. My only quibble.... given the nature of Macau as a Portuguese colony until 1999, their representation is nearly nonexistent in the museum.

Outstanding Maritime Museum!
Nov 2018 • Friends
I wasn't expecting much when I walked into this museum ... it was a target of opportunity after we had finished with the A-Ma Temple next door. But this modern, well designed, and thoughtful museum was a great experience. It communicates the rich Portuguese maritime history through a mix of artifacts and some of the best ship models you will ever see.

I have been to literally dozens of maritime museums around the world. This one isn't the biggest, nor the best appointed, but it is a terrific maritime museum, and a thoroughly enjoyable experience. And super inexpensive too.

The museum is located opposite the Amah Temple. It is located on three (3) floors depicting maritime commerce as well as migration patterns. Models of period ships abound..
