This past weekend I had a pleasant few hours in Macau and was able to get to the post office to get a copy of their latest issue. One I hope you enjoy seeing.  A miniature sheet and a block of 4 designs.

The theme is  “The Macao Museum of Art”, “Communications Museum”, “Macao Museum” and “Lin Zexu Memorial Museum of Macao” under the stamp series of “Museums and their Collections” between 2003 and 2014.  This issue is the fifth in a series with the  theme  – Maritime Museum”  It was issued on May 18th.  

The exhibition hall of the Maritime Museum has a distinct shape with a sailing ship as its design concept. The Maritime Museum is three-storey high, with maritime activities of China, Portugal and Macao regions as its major line; it is divided into different thematic exhibition areas: Maritime Ethnology Exhibition area, Maritime History Exhibition area and Maritime Technology Exhibition area.
This block of shows in the Divinity Chu Tai Sin, Octant, Tai To Junk and The Black Ship.
Enjoy your stamps
