Unfortunately we arrived late on Friday evening and were not able to visit the inside of the museum, However we were able to experience the garden outside and the wonderful views of Macau as the sun was setting. What a wonderful experience!

We decided to go visit the museum after a visit to the ruins of St. Paul. The museum had some interesting exhibits and it was good to learn more about the history of Macau. It just a minimal cost to get in and worth the visit.

The museum is large and interesting with a wide range of exhibits and lots to read, to skim through it would take almost an hour. However some of the interactive displays are dated and don't work. I preferred the amazing view at the top of the museum which you can get to via escalator. If you have time to spare,... More
