The visit to the Quanzhou Maritime Museum was an eye opener. The museum offers a wonderful glimpse of Quanzhou in its glorious past as the most important seafaring port of China, indeed the world. When everybody talks about China’s Belt and Road Initiative nowadays it...More

There are so many nice pieces in the exhibit. The main hall has the lower hull portion of an ancient ship raised from the seafloor just of the port of Quanzhou. Lots to learn from a small museum.

Please note that this museum, like most museums, is closed on Monday. Two of the exhibition halls are closed on the day I visit. I end up seeing only a large number of excavated tombstones. Not really my things, unfortunately.

Was a lot better than I was expecting. Pretty nice range of exhibits and lots of information about the various vessels and history of the area. The building is also quite nice, worth checking out.

Quanzhou is a living museum of world religions. Thanks to its long history of overseas trade and cultural exchange. We found this museum fascinating, although we wish there were more information/explanation. We went with our own researched therefore we weren't disappointed. Relics from the trades...More

This is highly touted by many of the guidebooks. However... frankly, despite the modern, well-funded exhibit facilities, the museum just didn't quite capture the spirit of the maritime Silk Road. I'm glad I knew to visit the ancient (Song dynasty) ship at the Kaiyuan Temple),...More

This museum has a lot of artifacts related to the different religions that existed in the city way before, including Christianity and Hinduism. On the second floor, there are replicas and actual parts/models of ships and sailing vessels used by the locals many years ago...More

This was the second time I am here. There's a big collection of ancient ship replicas, quite informative. There's also another part of the museum which shows the information and exhibits of different religions which set foot in China.
