Description:

The National Maritime Museum of China is situated in Northern China, outside the city of Tianjin. The museum houses both new and historic maritime items with a focus on celebrating the achievements of Chinese naval exploration throughout the ages.

The 80,000-square-metre museum project was won through an international design competition in 2011.

The National Maritime Museum of China comprises five hall structures radiating out to the port harbour and converging in a central preface hall. Each hall is dedicated to a different aspect of China’s marine heritage. These aspects include nature and ocean, world maritime civilisation, Chinese marine culture and historic vessels. There is a temporary exhibition hall and spaces for public education, business, research and curatorial facilities.
