Fantastic place to learn about the interesting history of Macau. The Portuguese influence, blended with Chinese culture around the nearby streets gives the place a really unique feel and charm. Unfortunately I couldn't find much of an explanation regarding why Macau is now seemingly spirallng towards becoming a busy, expensive, souless getaway for gamblers and shoppers.

The museum does not deserve a special visit, it is small and there is nothing interesting about it. On the other hand, it is located on the top of a hill with an excellent view of the entire historical part of Macau. Here is also a historic fortress.

Good small museum located on Mount hill where the fortress was built by the Jesuits in the 1600s. Costs 15MD (about $2US) to enter. Has large children's section where they can learn all about cannon ball making.

There is more regional history but the portugal influence is palpable. Only cost $2 to get in and they have a nice escalator that takes you up to the museum and then deposits you out at the top of the fort. Nice little bit of history and some interactive exhibits many in english.

Located right next to the St Paul Ruins is the Macau History Museum. If you really want to get a full understanding of Macau, then make sure to make time for the Macau History Museum. The Macau History Museum is built inside an old fort. The price to get into the museum is less than $2 USD. The museum does... More

The Macao Museum is close to the ruins of St Paul. They have exhibitions of how Macau was founded by the Portuguese, and expanded under both Portuguese and Chinese influences. It's a worth while visit if you have time or if you want to learn about the history of Macau.

Small museum, but full of history and old artifacts. Fun to see and learn about Macao. Probably not exciting for younger children.

One of the few places actually worth seeing in Macau. We got lucky and it was free entry when we went (Monday and public holiday). Quite small but some interesting exhibits about Macau

The Macao Museum takes you on a tour through history since the arrival of the Portuguese in China. The exhibition is made with a love to detail and very educative. For very young children there is also a section to playfully learn about Macao's history. The 20 MOP are well invested!
