The Maritime Museum (Chinese: 海事博物館; Portuguese: Museu Marítimo) is a museum in São Lourenço, Macau, China.[1]


The construction of the museum was proposed in 1986. The museum was finally opened in 1987. Because of space constraint, new museum building was constructed and opened on 24 June 1990.


The museum building spans over 800 m2 of area and was built on the site where the first Portuguese explorers landed on Macau in 1553.
