A good place to learn about the history of Macao, entrance fee is quite low. Do stay at least two hours as there is lots to see.

Worth visiting as the museum is not only well designed and interesting but located at the top of the fort providing a beautiful view of the city and surrounding area.

The museum is a almost a memoir of Macau. Right from the ancient times to the Portuguese settlement up to the present day, the museum catalogues history well. The exhibits are numerous and the fusion of the east & west are explained beautifully. it will completely dispel the myth of Macau being only a casino city.

A really interesting presentation of Macau's history with the Chinese and Portuguese influences explained side by side, then a wide range of exhibits about different aspects of its unique culture.

The museum itself located next to the st. pauls ruin church. If you really want to know what Macau was before all this casinos and resorts, you should go to this museum.

The museum is well laid out and takes you on an interesting time-line journey through the history of Macau. The comparison of history timeline between Europe and China/Macau is interesting. The tour through the building takes you to different scenes how life was in the earlier days, with sounds and smells. It gives me a good overview and for kids... More
