Beyond the touristy historic centre, Macau has more to offer. The five eye-catching houses in Taipa form a beautiful postcard of the former Portuguese colony. One of them is a small museum showing the life of the Macanese community. A long sheltered escalator connects this...More

Beautifully pastel painted houses in the old Taipa Village. Very nostalgic and reminiscent homes of old Macanese people. Beautifully preserved and true to period furnishings in the whole house.

I really appreciates the preservation of these houses, the furnished one gives one a good feel of what local family life of a well-respected Macanese family would be like.

We visited as part of a tour and were pleasantly surprised to find some beautiful gardens amongst the houses. A nice way to stretch the legs and get outside. The museum is not open on mondays, so we did not get to visit.

As often happens on adventures, we stumbled across these houses quite by accident while enjoying a delicious Portuguese lunch nearby. Well preserved example of local housing. Although there were many visitors in the relatively small house, crowd control was well managed and politely! If you...More

I believe that there are 5 houses at the museum but only one was open for visitors during the time of our visit. Entrance is free and you can wander through the house under the careful eyes of Filipino attendants. The rooms were elaborately decorated...More
