    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.

    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 is conveniently located.
    Opens 7 days 10:30am to 19:00.
    The only rest day is first Monday of every month.
    It shows how the Pawn shop stored their goods. How a Pawn shop looks like inside. Interesting. 15 minutes visit will do.

    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.

    A really sacred place from the Ruins of St. Paul
    You can access it behind the walls of the church. Be quiet and be careful.

    Casa Garden is found on the grounds of a property built in 1770 for a wealthy Portuguese merchant Manuel Pereira. It is one of three World Heritage attractions you can visit at Camoes Square north of the Ruins of St. Paul's.

    This is a European style garden with man-made pool and a couple of interesting monuments. The house, which unfortunately is not usually open to the public is also attractive. There are exhibitions held here from time to time so if lucky, you may be able to take a peak of he interior of the Casa Garden house.

    If short on time, this is one of the more isolate World Heritage attractions o you might want to take a pass on Casa Garden. However, if you are aiming for a comprehensive visit of Macao World Heritage, you can conveniently visit the gardens before or after the Protestant Cemetery and St. Anthony's Church while in the area of Camoes Square.

    A small museum embedded in a Suzhou-styled garden, the exhibits are not plentiful but educational enough to learn about tea culture. Admission is free and not much of a crowd. Spent an easy morning there if you want to move away from the tourist crowds.

    This museum houses a lot of real sacred treasure. It is free admission. This is not a very popular tourist spot. so don't miss this spot after visiting the church, especially if you are a catholic.

    The Macau Museum of Communications (MOP10 per person) is a educational and family friendly attraction that is makes for a fun way to spend a couple hours, especially for those visiting Macau with families. Opening Hours 9.30am-5pm (Tuesdays to Sundays). The museum is closed on Mondays and national holidays.

    This is a surprisingly enjoyable museum where you will find three floors of displays on historic communications, telecommunications and general electronics presented in a child-friendly and interactive way. You are issued a smart card as you enter the museum and use it to participate in various interactive activities and to activate certainly monitors, displays and programmes.

    We most enjoyed the stamp assembly station and the flight simulator you can try on the 2nd floor. The newsroom camera was also enjoyable as were the many cable, phone and electromagnetism stations were very interesting and good fun, even for adults. Everything in the museum is modern and in good working condition.

    They have bathroom, decent gift shop with stamps and other souvenirs and a small seating area with drink dispenser machines (no cafe).

    Overall, we consider this a great museum for those who are visiting with families and looking for child-friendly place to spend time in Macau. It is also a very good option during bad weather days when visitors are seeking indoor attractions.

    Note: Unfortunately, the location of this museum is very remote, being on the far side of the Reservoir on Estrada de D. Maria II, no.7, which is located outside the Macau Maritime Ferry Terminal. Further, there are no bus stops in the area so unless you know how to find this location, you'll want to take a taxi. Make sure to have the Macau tourism map. Find and circle the Communication Museum on the map and give it to your taxi driver. They will know how to get there.
