  • 外面就是具有高景的大砲台,室內即是博物館,但雖然收費不高,但全家人的費用頗高,希望可以降低。推薦去走走看看。  more »
  • Do not miss this wonderful free museum in the center of Macau. Well worth a visit. Allow 1 hour to take in all the exhibits. Take time to walk around Historic area.  more »

  • Excellent museum with a very complete collection, interactive expositions and easy-to-understand explanations on Macau's history. Definitely #1 on my list (I've been to lots of famous museums in the U.S. , Mexico, Panama, China, Japan, Australia, etc.) It has a very extensive collection of antique artifacts, clothes, instruments; it not only shows items but also has exhibitions on Macau's cultural heritage, traditions, and historical characters. A treat for museum lovers
  • Really perfect museum. Macao local students are free of charge. Interesting historic fabrics and display.
  • Museum was constructed inside and under the fort. The history, culture, relationship between China and Portuguese interpreted in 3 stories building. The exit of the museum bring to the top of the fort.
  • Really good design of the exhibits, well mix and balance of east and west (y)
  • Must see if you will visit Macau. It is near St. Paul so better drop by here also. Entrance is 15 macau dollars. Interesting and entertaining.
