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

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
