Really informative and interesting museum -- we were so pleasantly surprised, as we'd gone in mainly to get out of the rain. It's not a very large museum but its exhibits are very, very well done and convey a good bit of Macau's history and culture. Definitely worth it, and the outdoor cafe is lovely, too, for a good cup... More

this museum is worth a visit and is not expensive. It contains lots of interesting items and information about Macau. It is air conditioned, so a welcome break from the heat outside

A small museum that covers a broad spectrum of categories over the course of Macau history. A section covers the evolution of the Chinese opera in the south which includes the display of the costumes. It is a fascinating read.

The HK Museum is much, much better. However, if you are in Macau touring the Ruins of St. Paul, it's worthwhile to visit this museum. The HK Museum provides a broad historical perspective, this is a very biased Chinese focused perspective. Interestingly, there is nothing about World War 2. Macau was neutral and assisted the Japanese. Whereas, if you go... More
