$2 fee to see the history of Macau. New and well presented, very professional, located in the old fort on top of the hill. Do it.

Pleasant high quality exhibits. Smallish not exhaustive place. Lots of seating to observe the artifacts. Relaxed. 1.5 hours was nice tour. The museum was connected to the fortress ramparts and old city. Really user friendly. Cost was $1

This museum contains quite a bit of history of Macao, with many interesting things to see and places to sit as one reads all the material. Some things, however, were difficult to read as it was low and the top floor didn't have too much of interest. But overall this is a very good museum and not too expensive. Also,... More

Located next to the St. Paul's Ruins and built in a fort, this museum is a great presentation of history and culture of Macau. It gives one the information about the macau cuisines, the communities n their traditions and much more. If you are fond of museums and historical places, this place is really great.

I went here to learn a bit about the history of Macau, it provided some insight regarding the history throughout the various centuries and how the Portuguese affected the culture of Macau people.

Not as cool as the historic museum in Hong Kong, but worth a visit never-the-less. It's very near St. Paul (the one ruin you should not miss in Macao) and for a very cheap entry fee, you get a bit of history. The museum is small -- it will only take you about an hour to talk through it and... More

As there is nothing much to do after seeing St. Paul's, the Macau Museum literraly is just steps away from the Cathedral. You'll see the history of Macau and how it developed with both Chinese and Portugese influence. You can go through the Museum as fast or as slow as you want. It also gives you a great view of...

If you are visiting the ruins, or visiting the stone streets around Senado Square, check out the museum. You'll walk up stairs to the park/fort with the cannons, walk past a small Catholic grotto, and then get to the museum. It's worth it to walk up and see it. I was pleasantly surprised by the museum and spent more time... More

This is one of the most perfectly located museum I've visited. Sitting on top of the hill oversight the whole Macau, you walk through other historic buildings to get here. It is small and you won't feel boring walking inside. You see how the east and west meet through sailing the ocean for trading. You see what Macau was in... More

This small museum over three floors is well worth a visit. It mainly showcases the history both Chinese and Portuguese influences of Macau. There are some good views of Macau as well from the fort where the museum is located.
