Maritime Museum

Museum in Macau Peninsula

Located a stone's throw from A-Ma Temple and Moorish Barracks is the Maritime Museum. The highlights here are the interactive displays detailing the maritime histories of China and Portugal, a global maritime power in the 15th- and 16th-centuries. Also interesting are the artefacts from Macau’s seafaring past, and the mock-ups of boats – including the long, narrow dragon boats used during the Dragon Boat Festival – and a Hakka fishing village.
