Macao Maritime Museum : Great Price Good Exhibits

Kate and I didn’t intend to visit the Macao Maritime Museum. We were actually wondering around the Historic Centre of Macao when we realised that there was a Maritime Museum! As the weather was getting hot, we thought it would be a good idea to catch a breather and enjoy some air-conditioning in the museum. The entry was only 10MOP ($1.5 SGD) so we thought “why not?”

There are actually several sections in the Museum.

A section on Maritime Ethnology tells of the various traditions associated with fishermen and in general, living by the sea. Various fishing techniques and even legends are depicted in this section. However, our favourite section is the Maritime History section…

This section depicts the Maritime history and development of the Portuguese and Chinese. You will be able to see models of many interesting vessels of times past. The Maritime Technology segment was also enjoyable where you get to “interact” with some of the exhibits and also see past inventions such as this wheel-driven boat…

Did you know that there’s even a small aquarium in the museum that you can visit as well? So all in all, we thought that the visit to the Macao Maritime Museum was certainly well worth it – even if its just for a shade from the sun and a quick visit to the toilet…it’s clean! :p
