  • מאוד מעניין להכיר את ההיסטוריה של המקום והשילוב של התושבים הפורטוגלים והסיניים המקומיים. ני תן ללמוד הרבה במוזיאון לא גדול מאוד אבל מלא מידע ואינפורציה .

  • Not the best curated museum, but still a good one to get a background on the history of Macau. Located in a fort, which in itself is worth a visit.
  • Great exhibition about Portuguese colonial period. The views are nice but you need to pay attention because some parts of Fortaleza are little bit dangerous. The entry fee isn't high.
  • This museum is a respectable spot to find out about Macau history. There are so many tales that we can get here and then we can know what is mace before this era today.
  • It was so unfortunate, that it was closed when I went there during my first day in Macau. The entrance fee was pretty cheap and there are a lots of exhibits when you navigate around. I would say that the price was reasonable and it is a perfect spot to understand Macau and its culture.
  • Great view of the city. Managed to enjoy it quietly despite all the tourists.
