  • Does an okay job with the history of Macau. Laid out nicely, but definitely leaves one wanting more information. The building is in a cool neighborhood and gives a great view over the city.
  • It's very much worth it to go here. I love that a lot of their displays are interactive. There's 3 floors and at the top, you can go out to the fortress.
  • Really nice museum, for public transport: get down at Instuto de Accao Social (7,7A,8) and walk to R. de Dom Belchior Carneiro where u can find escalators all the way into Macau museum and to the top of the fort. Afterwards, u can walk downhill to Senado Squre! Save yourself the hike up!
  • 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 well organized with lots of information on the convergence of western and eastern cultures. Only 15 Hkd per person.
