Carpentry exhibition in a historic guildhall building
Nov 2018 • Solo
The Master Lu Ban Exhibition Room is an interesting minor attraction found small Rua de Camilio Pessanha, a few blocks northwest of Senado Square in the Historic Centre of Macau.

This is a 19th-century building which functioned as a Carpentry Guildhall. Today it is a two room exhibition centre. The first room includes a shrine while the second includes an display of over 80 different carpentry tools and implements. There are wall panels with history of Master Lu Ban, the ancient Chinese carpenter from around 500 BC.

This is a good exhibition (free entry) for those with interest in carpentry and something quick to see for those who plan to explore this area of the Historic Centre of Macau. You can conveniently visit in 5-10 minutes.

Facinated display of traditional woodworking tools and techniques!
Jul 2016 • Friends
If you are facinated about the art of chinese joinery, this is definitely the place not to miss. There is a little room that displays all the traditional woodworking tools used by the chinese craftsman. There is also a video showing how the tools are used. Very educational and informative.
