  • Really fantastic museum that was free on the day that I visited. Its very well laid out with great information and a ride range of ways of displaying the information from interactive things to maps, to animals to large displays and models. The location is also great on top of the hill forte with the cannons dotted around, nice landscaping and a great view of the city.
  • Five stars if only for the cricket coffin exhibit. Worth checking out and has a series of elevators to get down from the fort.
  • A historic place near the cathedral, we can view the entire land of Macau from the castle, including the famous Grand Lisboa
  • Nice museum explaining the blending of the Chinese and Portuguese culture into the distinct Macao culture . There is small fee to visit (equivalent of about USD 2). Shows a village reconstructed, with Portuguese and Chinese artifacts.
  • Very rude staff at ticketing counter! I presented a HKD10 note, mistaken it as HKD20, and she just passed it back to me without saying a single word. I then asked her if she do accept HKD, she replied with a very impatient and rude tone: It's 15 Dollars! Alright guys, welcome to Macau! #firstandlast
