If you want to learn about the history of Macau and the influence of the Chinese and the Portuguese on it's history and formation, this is exactly the place to go. They have really nice exhibits that are life sized, and you can walk through old examples of Macanese streets, houses, and waterways. It's quite fun, with interactive exhibits, and... More

This has really got interesting things in it to tell the history of Macau. It is VERY well done. Also a bonus is that it doesn't matter where you come from you can get an 'Elders concession' if you are over 60. It is a MUST place to visit if you are in Macau.

OK not so attractive! But it's a place that can spend around 1 hour if you don't have any ideas! Just need $10 to entry in!

It is a great place that having a museum to explore the place, Macau. The museum let me know more Macau that something I do not know from how it grew up from a silent village into a city.

A good and small introduction into the basic history of Macau, its Eastern and Western upbringings. Recommended for a quick reprieve from the summers heat and humidity (or the rain) if visiting the Ruins of St. Pauls Cathedral.

After live in the west over 20 years. Return to this small ex-colonial island, lots of strange feeling. The landscape a bit different than the portugese ruler before. Tough still had some small portugese country shadows. The diifferent is the portugese had a cleaner street while the macanese had a very dirty street. (If they change this will be much... More

Not many of us know the history of Macau. This museum does a nice job of showing what life was like over the years and how it got to be that way. It's one of the first places I visited and was a good orientation. While this review says I visited in September 2013, it was actually before Macau was... More

Have heard it's very good but after we hiked all the way up there we found it closed on Mondays. Oh well, the views from the fort around it are well worth the hike.
