  • A collection of old colonial era houses that have been converted into galleries and a simple museum, overlooking a lake and tall hotels where the sea once was. A relaxing experience where you can just walk around and enjoy the scenery, as well as soak in the history of the place. The place boasts a nice view for photos as well, with a neighbouring garden with different themes throughout the year.
  • Free entrance... a nice place to take a pic... on the outside... the inside are too dark and gloomy... but there's a lot of interesting vintage objects inside
  • Free of charge and very interesting. Recommended. Bring some mosquito repellent if you plan on taking pictures outside.
  • Very interesting architecture that gives visitors a good insight on the history of Macau before and then after the Portuguese came.
  • Free entry really impressive historical interior and furniture
