  • 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.
