Learn about Singapore’s history and trading ports at the Maritime Experimental Museum through interactive exhibits, life size ships and a typhoon in a 4D theatre. You can also visit SEA Aquarium which is located in the same complex.

Highlights

  • Giant Ship – As you walk through the entrance, you’ll be welcomed by a replica of Bao Chuan, a giant ship from the 15th century. A brief animated film is played on the front part of the ship to introduce visitors to Singapore maritime history.

  • Historic Exhibits – Well designed exhibits throughout the museum are on display including Zheng He Exhibits, The Souk marketplaces, Jewel of Muscat, Maritime Archaeology Gallery, and 15th Century Bakau Shipwreck Collection.

  • 4D Typhoon Theater – Journey into a typhoon on board a 9th century vessel. A 360 degree theater and 4D special effects will bring this trip to life. No photos are allowed to be taken inside the theater.
    Note: This is extra cost during peak periods. Price varies if you purchase the tickets on site and its generally more expensive than the $10 offer online. During non-peak periods, the Typhoon Theater will be included in the 1 or 2 day passes.

Prices

Purchasing a ticket for the S.E.A. Aquarium, Adventure Cove Waterpark or Universal Studios will allow you free admission to the Maritime Experiential Museum. The Typhoon Theater at this museum is a separate cost (from $10) during peak periods. You can check their site for peak and non-peak days.

Tips

  • Typhoon Theater – If you can afford it during the peak periods, its worth experiencing the 4D typhoon as it leads into the SEA Aquarium.
  • Food – There are food stores inside the museum, but there’s more variety and cheaper options in the hawker food court outside Universal Studios.

    Excellent

    We got free entry into this museum when we bought tickets for Adventure Cove, we were not expecting a freebie to be so enjoyable. We were very surprised and actually learnt alot. The 4D Typhoon was amazing and well executed – makes you realize hoe terrible it really was in real life!

    Fantastic attraction

    A unique take of Singapore’s maritime history. Although I honestly was not engaged enough to read all the information in display, some parts of the museum simply left me in awe just by the scale of the exhibits. You should not miss the 4d typhoon theater which is truly revolutionary in terms of immersion. I tried the attraction twice as I simply could not get enough of it! If you are a lover of marine life, you’ll enjoy this more than Universal Studios. I did!
