  • It's a tiny museum, but a very nice informative museum! I like the details that went into the display of the ships and the various sections showcasing the traditions and fishing industry is well done! Also, the ticket prices are cheaper on Sunday ($5 HKD/MOP) versus $10 HKD/MOP on a regular day for ages 18 to 64.
  • If you are interested in war & fishing boats and about people's lives, it is a recommended Museum that has even aquariums with various fish and in which you can learn in a mechanical puppet show about the legend about the origin of the opposite Temple.

  • Walk the old streets of the Macau S.A.R. and meet this Museum in the end. Admission is cheap, so try, but it doesn't hurt.
