worth a short visit if you like colonial buildings
Nov 2019
The Taipah Museum consists of only a few houses. Those who like colonial buildings are worth a short visit. The Taipa houses are within walking distance of the Venetian Hotel in a quiet footpath over a bridge and a meadow in about 10 minutes. Unfortunately I could not visit the houses, because a private event of the Macau Grand prix took place.

Colourful and Interesting architecture
Dec 2019
This group of Taipa Houses is worth a visit. The Portuguese architecture is a delight and there is even a house which is furnished. Entry is free. Quite a pleasant place to visit.

Pretty pastel buildings
Nov 2019
Interesting to see some historically significant buildings, not many of them and surreal to look from them over the”lake” to the very artificial Venetian casino

Colonial legacy
Apr 2019 • Family
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 lovely corner with the Venetian.

Nice museum collection of five colonial houses in Taipa Village
Feb 2019 • Couples
This is a museum collection of five colonial period houses which line the northern end of the artificial lake in Taipa Village. These are early 20th century residences of significant architectural value, hence their function as a museum since 1999.

The five house are used as a Macanese Living Museum (furnished house), exhibition space for art/sculpture shows and a souvenir and gift shop. Each are worth are view minutes to enjoy. Entry to each is now free. Opening hours are 10am to 7pm (Closed on Mondays).

There is also a large scale garden area below the five houses. Impressive flower and plant exhibitions are held in this area quite regularly. It is well worth passing by at these times. In June, this is also hot spot fo the annual Lotus Festival.

Nostalgia

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.
