    Very cheap entry, only £1.50, when we visited. Enough to keep you interested and out of the heat for about an hour.  more »

    There are filled with exhibits of Visual, perceptive of the Macau S.A.R.. Conveniently located near the ruins of St. Paul's, Monte Fort. Because the air conditioning is working to break?

    A museum that explains Macau's history and culture with many informative and eye catching exhibits and displays. Located conveniently near Monte Fort and Ruins of St Paul. Air-conditioned and well maintained. Can consider dropping by here if you're already in the area and if you're a museum buff.

    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

Where to stay in Macau

Cotai Strip in Macau offers luxury hotels, with famous names providing rooms looking out over the harbor and down into the historical center. Establishments in this area also feature onsite entertainment options and Vegas-style casinos. Look for more affordable options north of Nam Van Lake, where chain and boutique hotels provide rooms with views of the city, the harbor, and across to China proper. Head farther north for lower rates offered by hostels and apartment rentals.
