Exhibits:

Bao Chuan Viewing Deck:
Standing in the centre of the museum and greeting guests as they enter, is a full-sized replica of the bow of Admiral Zheng He’s treasure ship (Bao Chuan) Marvel and learn more about Admiral Zheng He’s voyages from China to the ‘Western Ocean’ and his mighty fleet during the 15th century. An introduction to his voyages from China to the ‘Western Ocean’ during the 15th century is told through a short animated video in a modern open-style theatre.

15th Century Bakau Shipwreck Collection:
The carbon dating of this collection of mainly ceramics cargo and the ship’s remains indicate that it is an early 15th century wreck, making it one of the earliest examples of Chinese shipping found in Southeast Asian waters.

Historic Ship Harbour:

Chinese Fuchuan Junk:
The Chinese Fuchuan junk was first developed in the Han Dynasty (206 BCE–220 CE). It was well-designed, sturdy and efficient and was used extensively in the maritime trade throughout Southeast Asia and the Indian Ocean.

Indian Dhow:
The Indian Dhow was adopted by the Arabs about 2,000 years ago and used for trade in the Persian Gulf, Arabian Sea and Indian Ocean. Dhows were well suited to the Maritime Silk Route, because they sailed easily in shallow water and responded well to the monsoon winds.
