Once You have reached the "fort" it would be a shame not to get into the museum, where the (for me) most interesting part shows Macau-life during the Portugese time ... it alway was two cultures living alongside each other ...

This review is quite late. The Macao Museum is located on a hill next to the Ruins of St. Paul. The area used to be a fort that is why there are old cannons on the site. The museum has a rich collection of Chinese and Portuguese artifacts on display which will give the visitor a brief historical background of... More

It's a very small museum. We went there because it was raining outside and we were in the area. It has a decent collection of Portuguese and Chinese artifacts. The model of old Macau houses were nice. It's just minutes away from the Ruins of St. Paul and the Historical Center of Macau. It's also a great stop if it's... More

If you want to learn about the history of Macau and the influence of the Chinese and the Portuguese on it's history and formation, this is exactly the place to go. They have really nice exhibits that are life sized, and you can walk through old examples of Macanese streets, houses, and waterways. It's quite fun, with interactive exhibits, and... More

This has really got interesting things in it to tell the history of Macau. It is VERY well done. Also a bonus is that it doesn't matter where you come from you can get an 'Elders concession' if you are over 60. It is a MUST place to visit if you are in Macau.
