“Nice place to visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013 via mobile

My family and I visited the Taipa Museum while visiting Macau. It situated in a very quiet area in Taipa, very easy to find. The museum is very interesting with lots of history of old Macau. The people worked there are very friendly, since my family was the only visitors there, the attendant (a very cute old lady) volunteer to give us a full guide tour. It was very educational for my daughters which are still in school.

“Small interesting museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

The Museum of Taipa and Coloane History is located in a wonderfully preserved Neo-Classical pastel building from the 1920's, once housing the Islands Municipal Council. The museum tells the story of the Archeology, Religion, Firecracker Factories and Shipbuilding, Agriculture and Fishery on Coloane and Taipa.

“Decent small museum in Taipa Village”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2011

We visited the Museum of Taipa and Coloane History recently and found it to be an ok place to visit if you plan to spend time in the Taipa Village area. This museum is not as interesting as the nearby Taipa Houses Museum but is still good value for money at just MOP5 per person. Entrance is free on Sunday and the Museum is closed on Mondays (as of August 2011)

There are some interesting architectural remains in the basement and reference to the local culture and history in this two storey museum with just 6 or 7 rooms. We enjoyed looking at the old Taipa maps in the downstairs exhibit rooms and the fireworks factory process model upstairs the most.

We recommend combining this museum with the Taipa Houses Museum, about 10 minutes away by foot, during a your visit to the Taipa village area.
