Must visit place when you are in Macau

A nice little museum nicely located inside a former fortress. The admission fee is very reasonable and the museum is well maintained.

Fantastic! I never thought that a museum will provide so much entertainment and fun! Kudos to the government of Macau for making this museum interactive and fun towards learning. Not only do we get a glimpse of Macau's beginning and growth, we are also given information on the trades and livelihood of the Chinese people. I regret visiting this Museum... More

My most favorite museum! Not only because I was born here... It's because it showed the complete Macau inside this museum from the beginning till now. So much to see, I can't explain in words. It's a MUST GO place!

This is a small museum which can be finished in 2-3 hours if you take the time to read most things. If you are a student, make sure to take your student card with you, the entrance fee will then be only hkd 8. The museum gives a good overview of the bistory of macau. I found the museum a... More

The building is three floors high very clean and well maintained with air conditioned spaces (nice escape from the summer heat and outside humidity)… The exhibits are really interesting and it shows...

I went on 'free Wednesday' and despite it being 33 degrees and 95% humidity outside, it wasn't that crowded. Many exhibits, and I was surprised by the building structures and other sections inside the museum. I loved the Chinese puppetry and opera exhibit. Don't miss this museum even if you only have limited time in Macau.

This was a great museum! They have very interesting displays illustrating the mix between Portuguese and Chinese culture in Macau. And most of the exhibits are very visual, which makes it a really fun museum to explore. Also the entrance fee is very inexpensive. Only 15 HKD, and 8 HKD for students. Definitely one of the most interesting parts of... More

The museum is located at the hill top next to the ruin of the Cathedral. There is an old fortress right at the same location. So, don't miss out visiting it after seeing the museum. Macao Museum has all the usual things a typical city museum has. Most interesting, it has a lot of mock-up of the old Macao to... More

Interesting history that is so different from Hong Kong. Oh yes, did I mention that it is air conditioned? Nice relief from the heat.
