The Macau Museum is a well appointed exhibit of local history through text, audio and video grams, actual physical displays of scaled boats, an old printing press, old carts; even several constructions with local people involved in former activities such as a few friends playing Mahjong, a typical family scene, restaurant, a shop etc. They also show a video with historic photographs and other information.

What is especially imposing is the fact that the museum was built inside what is called “Fortaleza del Monte” Or “Hills Fortress” which was an old Portuguese fort (similar to a Spanish fortress or fort), that overlooked the Pearl River delta and the South China Sea.

Several beautiful canyons are displayed on top of the fort itself in addition to the huge original walls now overlooking old Macau below.

Macau has several former Portuguese forts that used to be next to the shore. This territory has been expanding its area during the last 100 years at least by “stealing” land from the sea, similar to what the Netherlands has done during centuries, so several of these forts are now well inside the city and surrounded by modern buildings, residential areas, businesses and streets.

It is an amazing experience that is well worth visiting.

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.

Just up the hill overlooking the Ruins of St. Paul's, the Macao Museum is definitely worth an hour or two of your time to get an understanding of Macao's history! And the entry fee is less than U.S. $2.00 per person--cheaper if you're over 65😃!

This is one of the best museums I’ve visited in Asia. Combining the history of Europe with China it brings together how both cultures interacted with each other from the 16th century. There’s lots of interactive displays and for me it provides a new sense of the importance of trade between southern China and Europe and the influences on each culture. Very much worthwhile. Entry for children and older citizens free!

This was an interesting little museum in the old town of Macau. It’s cheap to get in and it’s worth a look, but it’s not a must do by any measure. It kind of gives you an overview of Macau history including contemporary history. And they have a re-creation of a typical Macau Street scene.

They do not accept credit cards and they do not have change. At least that what they told me when I gave them Visa and then $100 bill in Hong Kong funds.
Weird.
