  • Very useful place to learn and study history and old cultures of Macau. Lots of interesting thing inside this museum.  more »

  • It is an ok museam. The size is pretty small.
  • Good for kids and informative place
  • 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.
  • Not bad
  • 就在媽閣廟附近,步行不用5分鐘,一開始以為只是小型博物館,但館藏非常豐富,一下子消化不了,不過是個了解航海知識及漁業資源的好地方。另內部還設有一小型水族館,若沒注意容易錯過,看過靜態展示後,可以來欣賞動態的海生動物,值回票價。

Where to stay in Macau

Cotai Strip in Macau offers luxury hotels, with famous names providing rooms looking out over the harbor and down into the historical center. Establishments in this area also feature onsite entertainment options and Vegas-style casinos. Look for more affordable options north of Nam Van Lake, where chain and boutique hotels provide rooms with views of the city, the harbor, and across to China proper. Head farther north for lower rates offered by hostels and apartment rentals.
