The museum is very big but full of knowledge, culture, history at every conrner. Lovely displays and artifacts which get you thinking about the early trade routes. Interesting link to the interconnectedness between Portuguese and Chinese lifestyle and culture. And the view from the fort is so amazing!

We came here mostly to cool off but then found ourselves immersed. This is a great place to learn about the history of Macau. The exhibits are interactive and engaging. Also, there is a nice, little tea-shop / restaurant. If you are tired, take the escalators up. The view from the top is wonderful, and free.

Liked the museum here with the history of Macau. Loved the coffee shop here even more for its location to enjoy the view of the Ruins just right next door. Small fee apply. Recommended.

One of the best museum in Macao. My kids have a very enjoyable time in this place, good place to hang out after so many shopping malls. They enjoyed the place and at the same time learned a lot of the local history.
