  • We love Macao Museum. He's very big, very well taken care of, there's a lot of interesting information and is very interactive. Contributed a lot to know more about the history of Macao. Stay on top of a hill and must provide a beautiful view of the city. As it was raining on the day, we couldn't take advantage. The entry was 30 Patacas. Valley quite worthwhile.

  • There are plenty of interesting things to explore. When the weather is hot and if you go inside the city because I wanted more.

  • Really informative and interesting museum -- we were so pleasantly surprised, as we'd gone in mainly to get out of the rain. It's not a very large museum but its exhibits are very, very well done and ...  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.
