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.

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!

you could spend quite a lot of time here as the museum is also the aquarium which is excellent. there is a short 4D type of film shown every 20 minutes which is also excellent.

This place displays the historical information and past maritime trading artifacts in the region. It is part of the access with the S.E.A. Aquarium. The displays are neat and there is a few interactive ones. There's a simple and interesting game where you're a worker that perform tasks and explore the old Temasik and save the region from the invasion... More

This museum is housed together with the SEA Aquarium. In order to get to the Aquarium, one has to first pass through this museum & walk to the Aquarium located at the end, down the escalator.

We were delighted to find that this museum was included in our ticket to the SEA Aquarium. It is worthwhile stopping just beyond the entrance to watch the documentary film on Cheng Ho and the seven voyages of the Chinese “Treasure Fleet” - an excellent introduction to 15th century Asian maritime history. From there, walk through the colorful, dynamic larger-than-life... More
