An innovative, interactive and multi-sensorial museum, The Maritime Experiential Museum is the only museum in Singapore where visitors can experience Asia’s rich maritime history and discover Singapore’s past as a trading port.

This trip back in time begins along the ancient Maritime Silk Route, which recreates the sights, sounds and scents of the bustling bazaars and where you can interact with the exhibits. See a fascinating trove of precious artefacts from the Bakau shipwreck and Temasek archaeological site that can be found at the Maritime Archaeology Gallery. View life-sized ship replicas of Asian sailing vessels from the docks at the Historic Ship Harbour, and learn more about Asia’s maritime and cultural heritage through the museum’s education programmes.

This unforgettable visit ends on a nail-biting note in the 360º multimedia Typhoon Theatre where visitors ‘board’ a sailing ship and encounter a perilous storm. The most amazing voyage of discovery awaits at The Maritime Experiential Museum.

A bit of local history

This museum is in the entrance gallery to the aquarium. It's not much of a museum, but there are a few interesting and creative exhibits that are kid-friendly.

I could have spent my whole Sentosa day here at the Museum. It was a wonderful experience, insights into the origins of sea trade through Singapore, a "typhoon" 4D type show , and the wonderful exhibition area with the massive aquarium and walk through tunnel. I stood for a long time just watching all the sea life in the aquarium... More

located along the corridor towards the SEA aquarium, it has some display that depicts the maritime history of Singapore. Nothing special, just something for general knowledge.

This museum lies just before the Sea Aquarium entrance and is a place to exotic objects from around the world. The entire museum is designed in the shape of a ship with various sections hosting native products/showpieces from different cultures.

This was another attraction that was included in the tix for the aquarium and I had no idea what to expect. The little stands from the countries that traded were interesting but could have been bigger and actually had some staff to explain it to you. Wouldn't go back just for this....

Fun time walking along and reading more about the various exhibits. Worth the entrance fee. During the school holidays, they have little activity books for the kids. Gets them excited and encourages them to participate by reading and filling in information and collecting stamps

Small collection of "artifact"s along the way going to SEA aquarium entrance. We've tried the Typhoon theater (we missed it last time). It was nice!
