I really enjoyed this museum having ducked into it while it was raining in Macau. It was located above the ruins of St Paul and part of the Fortaleza Do Monte. You can take the escalator up to the top of the fort from within...More

Adjacent to ruins of St Paul's. One of the few attractions where entrance fee was charged but again was very reasonable. Nice look into the history of Macau. Also going through the museum to the top of the fort, saves the climb by foot. The...More

This occupies the top of the Monte Fort and is well worth taking the escalators up from the ruins of St. Paul’s and the small entrance fee. It has a good balance of artefacts, films and recreated historical scenes to interest all ages and is...More

The museum is next to the ruins of the church of St Paul, and also incorporates the old city fortress on top of it. At $15MOP it is a cheap attraction and a beautifully illustrated history of Macau with its Chinese and Portugese history entwining....More

We actually went to this museum two days running because there was so much to see and take in. From the comprehensive timeline linking European and Chinese history, to the Portugese occupation, a well curated view of this period. The streetscape,, cultural and ethnic displays...More
