The museum doesn't have much to say. But from the top you will have a 360 degree view of the city. It's in close proximity to the St Paul's Cathedral.

Cheap entrance fee and a welcome air conditioned hideout from the humidity of Macau. Great museum located right near the Ruins of St. Paul's. Many interesting exhibits, artefacts, models and a film to watch. Easy to navigate and explore on your own.

Did not really meet my expectation. Went to this museum, hoped to know about Macau history but seemed there was more about world history and culture than their own story.

I were really not excited when I went to Macao Museum from 2014. I think it is not large. However, I understood more about history of Macao, especially I saw Chinese, English and Portuguese in every signpost there. I were impressed the most by an ancient street which is simulated ancient architecture of Macao from 60s. Those houses are blended... More

I visited the museum in hope of getting some insight into the history of macau. Instead the museum felt more like a cobbled together exhibition of random artifacts. All in all i learned more abour the history of macao in exhibit "the hong kong story" in the hong kong historic museum. Save yourself the money and just enjoy the view... More

This museum has excellent displays and explanations of Macau's history. Absolutely worth a trip. It's one of the main draws when visiting Macau. The upkeep is very good and it's actually set inside of Monte Forte, so you walk thru a historically significant structure while learning more of the area's history. Great info and it helps set the scene for... More

Nothing can be better than knowing about the history of a destination that you are visiting. There is much that Macao museum tells you with those beautiful relics.

A very inactive museum which gives an excellent history of the English, Dutch and Portuguese Involvement in Macau. There is also a good explanation of the outward migration of Chinese to all of Asia, Europe and the Americas,,

This is a lovely museum and definitely worth looking round when visiting Macau. It doesn't take long to get around but gives a good overview of the history of the city. It is well laid out with lots of benches for the more weary traveller ! (Lovely little cafe outside where you can create your own bespoke sandwiches and have... More
