  • 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.

  • Maritime Museum which registers Macau's history on boats, fishing practices, fishing community, maritime trade routes, etc. An interesting, well presented content. The building is of a descrete PoMo, with outdoor canopy made to ressemble sails.
  • Probably the best and most comprehensive museum in Macau.
  • Good place,
  • Small maritime museum. MOP10 for entry. Sunday is MOP5. Not a huge museum but has good displays of miniature ships and fisherman boats in Macau. If u like ships, it is a nice place visit for a low entrance fee. Just directly opposite the historic Ah-Ma temple.
  • I See, Learn and Experience Lot Of Things Inside Way Back To The Past Civilization And Feels Like A Time Travel Also. Great For Family Destination And Bonding Moments. The Telling Of Every Stories Are Articulated And Well Explained
