As a bonus, there is a lovely cafe at the museum which serves delicious and reasonably priced food. The outdoor fort area offers some nice... More

After that hot walk from the Ruins of St. Paul, you can go here at the museum to get yourself chill. You wouldn't ever imagine that there is a museum beneath the trees beside the ruins because the entrance is awesome like that. You thought you're going in a zoo with that jurassic entrance that this museum have. It's cool... More

As a historian, I always jump the chance to visit places like this. I was not disappointed. The history of the former Portuguese colony is presented in English, Chinese, and Portuguese. Exhibits include a life-size recreation of a Macau street, historical artifacts, in addition to audio and visual presentations. The museum is located at the Mountain Fort. Visitors can either...

Macao is very small, but its history is big and what's really nice is how its people are telling the story in the museum. This museum tells you the story in an interesting way so you can enjoy every part. Enjoy

Very interesting, has lots of information and very nicely done. It costs around MOP15 to go in so it is cheap! The place is big, well kept and interactive. The museum is also located on the old fort, lovely view of macau from there!

The collection is extensive and included Portuguese ships and sailing boats. There were replicas of parts of old houses and of the churches, and were done nicely. Visitors come out getting a glimpse of life in old Macau from more than 50 years ago, complete with people playing mahjong, street vendors who collected junks (with their familiar recorded voices announcing...
