  • 如果話這裡是一個博物館,不如說這裡是一個保存得完整一點的葡式住所。如經過官也街,可於逢星期日免費參觀時入內一看,平日要收費時就要考慮了。 
  • 澳門八景之一,是具有優雅氣質的葡式建築,經常有新人在這裡拍婚紗照,很適合駐足拍照,因爲在官也街附近,去官也街時順便一遊還不錯。 
  • Free of charge, this musseum has a great setting to understand and see the first par of XX Century style of living in old Macau. Well prepared, maintained, and safe place for tourist.

  • Beautiful gardens and the houses are converted in to really interesting museums. Definitely worth the stop.
  • This museum is an alive demonstration of the daily lives of Macanese. While the buildings themselves are already historical objects, the exhibitions inside are quite interesting as well.
  • One of the great places in Macao for all travellers to visit and learn the history here.
  • I love how quiet and relaxing the place is especially at night... The buildings are quite unique too!
  • Away from the hustle and bustle, this is a nice place to go for a walk while enjoying the scenery.
