Walked there on a Monday to find it closed so will return another day. Looking forward to giving it a much higher rating next visit.

Extremely well presented museum. Certainly not boring. It give you a great overall view of the history of Macau and the trades that created this place in history.

The museum itself is OK, nothing really special... mostly visuals about former life in Macau, with limited added value, probably nice for children. The most interesting part being perhaps the first exhibit comparing Europe and China development over time. On the other hand, the entrance fee is very low and the view from the top fine.

There seems to be as much space dedicated to glorifying Chinese philosophy and empire-building as to the history of Macau. However, it's cheap (MOP15), it's in the fort which you should visit anyway (note you can go to the top of the fort for free), and there are some gems like the recordings of hawker cries, so you may as...

The museum doesn't have much to say. But from the top you will have a 360 degree view of the city. It's in close proximity to the St Paul's Cathedral.

Cheap entrance fee and a welcome air conditioned hideout from the humidity of Macau. Great museum located right near the Ruins of St. Paul's. Many interesting exhibits, artefacts, models and a film to watch. Easy to navigate and explore on your own.

Did not really meet my expectation. Went to this museum, hoped to know about Macau history but seemed there was more about world history and culture than their own story.

I were really not excited when I went to Macao Museum from 2014. I think it is not large. However, I understood more about history of Macao, especially I saw Chinese, English and Portuguese in every signpost there. I were impressed the most by an ancient street which is simulated ancient architecture of Macao from 60s. Those houses are blended... More
