Macau Story House - Preserving Macau's history, heritage and culture
Apr 2014
The Macau Story House (free admission) was setup in 2012 and is another art space found in and around the St. Lazarus District of Macau, serving to preserve the history, heritage and culture of this fast changing and developing city. Here you can find a collection of historic books, histories and photos of Macau set up in a reading room. Historic Chinese, English and Portuguese books and material are on display and in shelves and you are welcome to browse through and enjoy. There are also a few seats and air-conditioning, making this a nice place to stop on hot summer days. Recently, we visited to see a Map exhibition, featuring a chronological arrangement of maps of the Macau Peninsula. This was interesting as it provided context and perspective of how Macau had grown up in recent centuries. We particularly enjoyed seeing the various maps from the 20th century which showed how land reclamations had dramatically altered the landscape of Macau. Considering the ambitious future reclamation projects on schedule for Macau, as the country tries to expand its land space, you can are left to imagine what its landscape will look like 20 and 50 years into the future. In the end, the Macau Story House is a small and specialist attraction that will be best appreciated by those with a interest in history and culture. You can visit for 5-10 minutes just to see what is here or easily spend a couple hours going through old books and glancing at old photos of Macau, if you have the time.

Was a respectable culture and heritage preservation effort in St. Lazarus District
Nov 2019
The Macau Story House was a respectable cultural preservation effort in the St. Lazarus District of Macau. It was opened in 2012 to create a space for residents and visitors to enjoy viewing a fine collection of historic books, maps, photos and other items related to Macau's past. Unfortunately, Macau Story House closed down a couple of years ago and is no longer available to visit.
