    After visiting the museum I decided to wander around this part of the fort. While offering an important site in the history of Macau it also provides great views of the city and across the river to China. This is a great photo opportunity site.

    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.

    This museum, besides being situated on a beautiful viewpoint, is interested and worth a trip if you want to see how the life in the old Portuguese enclave of Macau was. I enjoyed the history.

    Provide ample chances and space for kids. My kid of 2.5y loves here. Well-managed, clean and the interactive games for kid are quite innovative. Can spend several hours here. Definitely will come back again!

    Nice museum with plenty of miniature ships and description of fishermen's life in Macau. Just opposite A Ma's temple so it is worthwhile just to drop by. Only a small entrance fee.

    The Kun Iam Statue and Ecumenical Centre (free entry) is located along Ave. Dr. Sun Yat-Sen in the N.A.P.E. area of Macau. You can see the statue at all hours of the day. The Centre is open from 10am to 6pm daily (closed on Fridays).

    What you see here is a 20 metre tall figure of Kun Iam (Goddess of Mercy) situated atop the Ecumenical Centre. This much revered figure is gold in colour, graceful with a loving and caring appearance. The statue is located at the end of a 60 metre causeway in the harbour facing the Macau Peninsula.

    You can take good photos of the Kun Iam Statue during the day when the sun is at your back. At night the statue is lit up with floodlights and is nice to see as well.

    The Ecumenical Centre can be an interesting place to visit if you have time and interest in local religions and philosophies of Buddhism, Confucianism and Taoism as well as more specifically about Kun Iam, all of which is broadly covered within the two floors of the Centre.

    The Museum of Taipa and Coloane History museum is one of two museums in Taipa Village. This one is located on Rua Correia da Silva in the teal green coloured colonial era property that formerly served as a public administration building.

    The museum includes two floors of displays dedicated to the history of the fishing village of Taipa and Coloane, other industries that thrived here in the past as well as earlier period Portuguese administration. You'll see late 19th-century building excavations as well.

    The museum is worth a 15-30 minute visit depending on your interest. Opening hours are 10am to 6pm daily (Closed on Mondays) and entry is now free for all visitors.

    A well designed infrastructure. I like the steep long corridor connecting 4/F and 3/F, seems walking through a space tunnel under sun. Exhibitions are along good, sometime from China with historical value and sometime contemporary. Always free admission.

    St. Joseph Seminary Building was built in 1728 and the Church was built in 1758 is a fine example of batoque architecture. Inside the Church lies one of Macau's most valuable religious relics and it is calm and peaceful in the church. From this seminary Jesuit misdiinaries fanned put across China, Japan anf around the region to spread Christianity.

    Went to visit the art museum located next to this museum but was disappointed to find it was between exhibition set ups. The receptionist asked if I had seen the Handover Museum next door and mentioned that it also had an art collection.

    I hadn’t so headed over. Entry was free and there were certainly lots of visitors, mostly I guessed from mainland China. Museum is spread over three levels and have an exhibition of gifts given to Macau by various provinces of China on its return to the motherland. Many beautiful art works on display with excellent layout.

    There is a mix of conventional art work in one gallery - primarily contemporary with some modern with some excellent paintings of Macau and also of the HK - Macau bridge construction.

    There are many large gifts in the other hall . Some of precious metal with stones, others of embroidered silk etc. A monumental sculpture from the Thai people of an elephant head and another from elsewhere of a temple. A wonder mixture and you can spend a couple of hours walking around here. A very pleasant museum to spend the afternoon.

    The history of wine. The process of wine making and everything that goes along with it. A vast collection of ancient wine bottles and stuff. Interesting place.
