Adjacent to the Ruins of St Paul. The Macau Museum is a comprehensive exhibits of the culture, lifestyle, practices and customs. Must not give this a miss. We were there on 2 Jan and admission was free!

If you want to know why Macau is different from Hong Kong and Mainland China, you must visit it. This is very near around 50 meter from St Paul Church. You can climb nearby rock and then can enter this museum or directly enter from the proper entrance. They have very minimal ticket charge.

Nice place for a visit. Again if you are not into museums then this wouldn't be the place for you. Very well set out and informative. Great old artifacts. Covers Portuguese and Chinese history :)

A definite must when visiting Macau. A very interesting insight into Macau history and culture. Make sure you leave time to explore the roof garden.

Around 1 hour to complete, it's a rather small museum in one of the cultural sites alley, right across an authentic rustic old temple. Very informative about the history of Macau

Small musuem that briefly summarises the history and culture of Macau. Opposite the Ruins of St Paul. There are some replica cannons overlooking the town centre on the roof level which is formerly a fort.

I was pleasantly surprised at how good this museum was. I wasn't sure what to expect but ended up spending more time here than I thought I would. There are some beautiful exhibits to check out and there are a few floors to it. Great way to learn about Macau.
