Learn about Commissioner Lin Zexu and the start of the Opium Wars
Feb 2019
This is a small museum (MOP5) right next to the famous and important Lin Fong Temple on Ave. do Almirante Lacerda. It is dedicated to important early 19th-century Mandarin Commissioner Lin Zexu.

Here you find a large outdoor statue of Commissioner Lin Zexu. Within the museum, you will learn the history of Zexu's visits to Macau and his dealings with Western powers such as the Portuguese and British in relation to opium trading in China, which eventually escalated into the infamous Opium Wars.

You can visit the museum from 9am to 5pm daily (closed Mondays). It is small and can be conveniently visited in 10-20 minutes before or after spending time in the Lin Fong Temple. Those with stronger interest in historical China-West relations and the Opium Wars may want to spend a bit more time here going through the various text displays.

Small, interesting Museum in a beautiful location

The Museum is located in the pleasant peaceful ancient Lianfeng Temple, which is also worth visiting.
Lin Zexu was the Chinese Imperial Commissioner who gave a start to the First Opium War by confiscating and destroying the opium cargos of East India Company. IF you are interested in History and want to read and understand better also the Chinese position,make a short stop in the museum and stroll in the pleasant Temp,e.

Lin Zexu Museum is located in Lianfeng Temple, the door has a large statue of Lin Zexu, usually in the museum need to charge, but some specific day is free to enter, the museum facilities are about commemorating Lin Zexu in Humen destroyed the deeds of opium and Lin Zexu China's contribution, there are wax figures and documents to reproduce the time Lin Zexu how to discuss the destruction of opium scene, but I think the cost of a little waste of the visit, I was also boring because a person into the visit, because the scope of the museum is very small, When you look at the door when you have to look at all the facilities of the museum, unless you are interested in the deeds of Lin Zexu, if not you will feel a waste of money and time

Small museum dedicated to one person

Lin Zexu is not a famous Chinese historical figure. He is someone particularly well known to people from Hong Kong and Macau.

This is a very small museum built by the temple charity organization next to it. It's plainly illustrated Lin's life with writings and a few exhibits, plus a few statues.

Unless you are really into Chinese Qing dynasty history, it's not worth to visit, as the location is far away from city center.

Small museum dedicated to Commission Lin Zexu
Dec 2015 • Solo
The Lin Zexu Museum is located near Lin Fong Temple on the north side of Mong Ha hill on the Macau Peninsula. This is an isolated attraction quite far from the majority of Macau's sightseeing in the historic city centre. However, it might be of interest to history buffs or others planning to visit the famous temple here.

At the museum you can learn about the famous visit to Macau of Imperial Commissioner Lin Zexu who was dispatched here in 1839 to negotiate the end of the opium trade that was plaguing the nation of China. Events unfolded afterwards that would result in the Opium Wars and the cession of Hong Kong from China to Britain.

The museum can be comfortably visited in 10-15 minutes and is best combined with a visit to the nearby Lin Fong Temple just a couple minutes away. This is where Commissioner Lin Zexu stayed during his famous visit to Macau and one of Macau's most interesting temples to visit.

Interesting to see how Lin Zexu is remembered

The Macau Lin Zexu Memorial Museum began in 1997 and is a good way to understand how the Chinese think about their own modern history. Lin Zexu is presented as an incorruptible official, a visionary of modernization, and a great patriot. It is more interesting as a way to think about how local Macanese-Chinese demonstrate their patriotism towards the PRC.
