china.org.cn says
If the history of Macau is really connected to the sea, there is, indeed, no better place for the Maritime Museum (娴蜂簨鍗氱墿棣), than the Square of the Barra Pagoda, dedicated to the Taoist goddess "A-MA", the protector of the fishermen, and also believed as the place where the Portuguese landed for the first time. The place was called "A MA GAO" at the time (the harbour of A-MA) - hence the name of Macau. This is precisely the spot where the Maritime Museum is located and its building has the stylised form of a sailing ship anchored in the waters of the Inner Harbour. On the ground floor the visitor can find the traditions and the way of life of the fishermen in Macau and South China: there are several types of ships, instruments and ways of fishing, different varieties of fish and shellfish living in these waters and even a copy of the house of a fisherman, where the whole family can be seen sharing the tasks which precede聽or聽follow the fishing activities.

On the way out the visitor will cross a gallery of aquariums allowing him to observe a riverbed, harbor waters, a coral reef and last of all the seabed harboring the remains of a ship drowned long ago. Outside of the museum the visitor will find several real size pieces, among which a dragon-boat similar to those used during the Dragon Boat Festival.
