Even though the third floor was closed, the museum was a great way to understand the history of Macau. The single cabinet of coins on the first floor was particularly impressive, as it displayed a single value from the time shells were used and the evolution of metal coins. Surprisingly, the museum was not that busy around lunch time and... More

A very wel kept museum,altough it depicts old tradition and culture of Macau but in a modern set up like it was a old heritage building with escalators to go up and down,there collection was marvalous,specially the wood work and ethnic art work was worth to see.

If you want to learn about Macao and its history, I would really recommend this place. It is up in the Fortress and is a nice trek up to this place.

I visited on my own. Because it's ranked #1 in Macau, I went straight there from the Ferry by taxi. Unfortunately, the taxi driver didn't recognize the picture!? But, the museum is right beside the ruins of St Paul's...so you can just get dropped off there...it's where you want to be anyway. The museum is quite well done. There's an... More

A good place to learn about the history of Macao, entrance fee is quite low. Do stay at least two hours as there is lots to see.

Has a first time visitor to Macau, the Museum was a great place to start. The presentation really showed the history of the Chinese and Portuguese influences. We got to see Macau’s history before all the Casinos came to town. The Museum and the ruins should be the first place to head to when visiting Macau. Has a history buff,... More

The museum is a almost a memoir of Macau. Right from the ancient times to the Portuguese settlement up to the present day, the museum catalogues history well. The exhibits are numerous and the fusion of the east & west are explained beautifully. it will completely dispel the myth of Macau being only a casino city.
