It is a great place that having a museum to explore the place, Macau. The museum let me know more Macau that something I do not know from how it grew up from a silent village into a city.

A good and small introduction into the basic history of Macau, its Eastern and Western upbringings. Recommended for a quick reprieve from the summers heat and humidity (or the rain) if visiting the Ruins of St. Pauls Cathedral.

After live in the west over 20 years. Return to this small ex-colonial island, lots of strange feeling. The landscape a bit different than the portugese ruler before. Tough still had some small portugese country shadows. The diifferent is the portugese had a cleaner street while the macanese had a very dirty street. (If they change this will be much... More

Not many of us know the history of Macau. This museum does a nice job of showing what life was like over the years and how it got to be that way. It's one of the first places I visited and was a good orientation. While this review says I visited in September 2013, it was actually before Macau was... More

Have heard it's very good but after we hiked all the way up there we found it closed on Mondays. Oh well, the views from the fort around it are well worth the hike.

Museums often provide a wonderful insight into the history, culture, stories of a city and the Macau Museum is no exception. A social history from the Bronze Age (and astounding archaeological finds near Coloane/Taipa) across the ages to the contemporary era. Well presented, well labelled and providing insights into Macau life in the 1700's-1900's when it was a pivotal point... More

For those who love history, Macau are offering lots of great places and this Museum is one of them. You HAVE TO visit this museum if you around Senado Square. It only took 10 minutes or less of walking from the square. The museum located in the hill, needs a little effort to reach it. But, no worries!! They provided... More

Macau has an amazing history.. With over 400 years of Portuguese rule in a little enclave in China.. There's tons of amazing & unique history that this museum well preserved.. You will leave here understanding what took place in Macau and how it shaped it's current state. On another note.. It's located inside an old Portuguese fort! A must see..... More

A lot of effort has gone into this ad it is fascinating for historians. The entry fee is low - about £1 - and you can spend a couple of hours there. Escalators look out of place but without them the footfall would be minimal.
