  • This museum, besides being situated on a beautiful viewpoint, is interested and worth a trip if you want to see how the life in the old Portuguese enclave of Macau was. I enjoyed the history.

  • A very nice museum to learn the histories of Macao and its culture. The museum is built above a hill at an old fort. There are escalators to take people up to the museum (very handy if you travel with older people and children). There is ruins of st paul opposite the museum. We went there on Christmas day, and entry was free that day. We took many great photos outside the museum. There are many old cannons lining up the fort wall
  • Museum of Macao....is well designed in its layout, tracing the Chinese occupation to its colonization by the Portuguese after the arrival of Vasco da Gama....the formation and discovery of new trade routes from Europe to India and South china sea .....3D models of city layout and Colonial buildings are on display..... artefacts from war , paintings and performing arts are included....the terrace garden and view of the city concludes the comprehensive historical tour.....
