Very good museum for background to your Macau visit

Easy to find, and cheap entry, even free to Seniors. Very well laid out, with plenty of modern exhibits and some excellent models. Perfectly sized for one visit - of 1 to 2 hours... read more

Definitely worth checking out, head up to the top and enjoy the view over the bay. You can get photos with the canons or explore the lovely gardens. Lots of grassy areas to sit and enjoy the sunlight.

Adjacent to the Ruins of St Paul. The Macau Museum is a comprehensive exhibits of the culture, lifestyle, practices and customs. Must not give this a miss. We were there on 2 Jan and admission was free!

We had a good hour here, no need to have a formalised tour, as the museum is easy to walk around, with plenty of signage everywhere, so easy to find your way around, and easy to get a taste of the history, without information overload. Really well laid out - staff friendly too. One floor was shut, but was enough... More

If you want to know why Macau is different from Hong Kong and Mainland China, you must visit it. This is very near around 50 meter from St Paul Church. You can climb nearby rock and then can enter this museum or directly enter from the proper entrance. They have very minimal ticket charge.

Nice place for a visit. Again if you are not into museums then this wouldn't be the place for you. Very well set out and informative. Great old artifacts. Covers Portuguese and Chinese history :)
