  • 去一个城市能定要去他的博物馆看看,因为这里是展现城市历史的地方,澳门的博物馆相对于内地的很小,门票大概15/20港币,从渔村到现在的都市,从被割让到回到祖国母亲怀抱,一一展现澳门历史的变迁。  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.
