Well worth a visit!

A good introduction to life under the Portuguese. Worth visiting after a walk around the walls of the fort and a welcome refuge from the July heat.

entry cheap - and well worth a stop if only to escape the ridiculous heat and humidity. Even the kids enjoyed it- took about 2 hours to see properly including the videos.

It's a simple museum built near the Cathedral ruins. It does tell the story of Macau but in a factual, fairly uncritical way. Good if one wants a quick historical overview of the city.

If you're not a casino person, there's really not that much that Macao has for you, apart from a few places like this museum. This was a nice place to visit, and it was included in the city tour.

It was small by normal standards and the collections on display were limited. The layout was pleasant. When you reach the top level of the displays you will find that in order to exit you will have to come out onto a terrace from where you can access the escalator to return down (not through the museum but outside).

It was a museum worth seeing but the time constraints compelled us to just rush through the museum of course taking a few snaps.But strictly speaking it needs a few hours to go through this museum

Macau museum I was here with my family after walking up the St. Paul's ruins staircase and it's on the right side. Entry is Hk$8 kids and Hk$15 adult. With the hot sun outside, this is a great place to cool down too. The museum is nicely laid out and guides are inside to explain the artifacts if need to.... More

We stumbled on the museum while visiting the ruins of St Pauls. This is a very nice museum - very well organised, with a great variety of exhibits from a long and diverse history. The entry is very reaonable and we spent a couple of hours learning about the very interesting history of Macau. A great overview that contextualises many... More

Macau Museum presents various aspects of Macau's history, from ancient to modern times. It's quite educational if you'd like to learn more about the history of the place. In addition, it offers beautiful views of the Macau peninsula from the Mount Fortress (this part is free).

From the Museu de Macau grounds it is possible to have a great view all over Macau and help us situate ourselves. It is possible to see the ruins below and all the sides of Macau. Impossible to miss.
