Very well laid out and informative museum that covers historical development of Chinese and Portuguese culture in Macau. Mostly concentrating on the development of trade routes.

If you aren't a fan of history then come here purely for the air con and the peace and quiet. However if you love history this will be a great glimpse into the past of the city of Macau.

This museum is more of an exhibit. It is very small and tiny. Takes 5 minutes tops about 1.5 minute in average and 15 seconds to walk through it. Some very nice pieces nevertheless.
