The Macau Museum, the former official residence of the Portuguese governor, gives an extensive presentation of the history of Macau with many historical artifacts and it highlights the Macanese folk art and culture too. Far before Hong Kong it was the connecting harbor for trade to Shamian Island, Guangzhou, China. As a Dutchman I was surprised by the defeat of the Dutch when their invasion in 1622 turned out into a failure. Still a nice museum though with displays in English as well.
