Initially we decided to visit the Macau Museum of Natural History but being a Monday it was closed so we decided to visit this instead, and we were not disappointed. The museum is built close to the site where the Portuguese explorers first set foot....More

This charming and well designed museum is very reasonably priced, well organised and informative with lots of beautiful model boats. It covers both Portuguese and local Southern Chinese maritime history.

Located opposite the A-Ma Temple, the Maritime Museum has a convenient location and interesting exhibits. It is well laid-out ; open, airy and light-filled in scope. THe proof of the pudding is that an easily bored teenager was not bored there.
