Very well laid out and informative museum that covers historical development of Chinese and Portuguese culture in Macau. Mostly concentrating on the development of trade routes.

This small - very small - museum only takes 5 or 10 minutes to see in full. It's a nice way to add some more context to a visit to the Ruins of St Pauls. It's also great to catch some air conditioning on a...More

This museum is part of the Ruins of St Paul and it is just inside the ruins (Church) gate. Nothing great but don’t mind to spend 10-15 mins if you are curious and you are already there at the ruins. Timings: 9AM to 6PM, Free...More

If you aren't a fan of history then come here purely for the air con and the peace and quiet. However if you love history this will be a great glimpse into the past of the city of Macau.

I like museum generally. This is a very small exhibit of the sacred art but I like it because the items were thoughtfully spaced out and clearly labelled. The crypt was also interesting compared to the ones I seen in Europe. It's very small but...More
