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.

I was reluctant to go inside and it didn't felt like a attractive museum, since i had time, i went inside and saw lots of collections. But its boring in the end and just a time killer.

I popped in because I was exhausted from the summer heat and burning ghost money at A-Ma temple. I thought I'd pay for a ticket just to get cool, but I found the exhibits interesting and well-thought out. Also, it was really cool inside.

You can learn a lot about the main business in ancient Macao - fishery. You will know about national holidays, myths, legends, Portuguese-Macao maritime experience exchange and recent Macao navigable changes. Souvenirs and big aquariums at the exit.

Only visited this museum because we went to the Ah Ma Temple as it is only next door. Disappointing as it is too small and not enough exhibits on show.

Average. If you have limited time and are looking to prioritize where to go, I would give this place a pass.
