Drop your landlubber legs – the Maritime Experiential Museum is all about unleashing our inner sailors
Ahoy there, matey! Think you’ve been to all the top attractions in Resorts World Sentosa? Here’s another excuse to visit the island getaway: the newly reopened Maritime Experiential Museum! Whether you’re reliving that childhood dream of exploring the mighty seas or are simply a maritime or history geek (hands up over here), you’ll want to dive headfirst into the museum’s multi-sensory exhibitions – and we’ve got the highlights.
All senses on deck…
The new and improved exhibitions are a multi-sensory treat – think holographic versions of great seafarers like Sang Nila Utama. Learn the ropes of running a ship, and navigate the seas with the help of a mariner’s compass and knots, nautical charts, and the stars.
It’s all on the nose…
This one’s our personal fave. Ports of Call is all about getting immersed in the sights and smells of major 14th century ports like Quanzhou, Oman, Calicut and Malacca – but it’s not your typical showcase. Not only will you see what trading in the past was like, you also get to experience it all yourself: the many spices that changed hands, and the opulent perfumes redolent of an era long gone…
Tip! Make sure to dress up for your visit; this exhibition is packed with photo ops that are perfect for the ‘Gram.
Set your sails…
What’s a maritime exhibition without its ships? Feast your eyes on replicas of majestic vessels such as the Chinese junk, Javanese jong and Borobudur ship. If it’s a true-blue sea epic you’re looking for, don’t miss out on the Typhoon Theatre, where you’ll be fighting the treacherous waves. Spoiler alert: there’s nothing quite like the wrath of the seas, so buckle up!
If you haven’t been to the amazing S.E.A. Aquarium yet, now’s the time – ticket bundles for both attractions go as low as $25; entrance to the museum alone is $5 for seniors, $6 for the kids and $9 for adults.
