    Went to the toilet, entrance fee 10 MOP "have paid..." enhance Buri of exhibitions greatly exceeded expectations, but I was wondering what I was surprised. Also see detailed information about Admiral Cheng Ho of the greatest difference between the old regional ship, Chinese history, Portugal merchant, inshore fisheries-related article, which would never get bored. I think content is unknown because it mostly with commentary in English, it is not. Portugal ties here from Tanegashima gun Festival is just amazing and I think. I absolutely enjoy anyway to enhance trade and maritime relations are even slightly interested in. Incidentally it was unusually clean toilets.

    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.
