We visited as part of a tour and were pleasantly surprised to find some beautiful gardens amongst the houses. A nice way to stretch the legs and get outside. The museum is not open on mondays, so we did not get to visit.

As often happens on adventures, we stumbled across these houses quite by accident while enjoying a delicious Portuguese lunch nearby. Well preserved example of local housing. Although there were many visitors in the relatively small house, crowd control was well managed and politely! If you...More

Not too far a walk from the casinos. A nice piece of colonial history. Well preserved and a contrast to high rise blocks.

It won’t take long to look around, even if there’s an exhibition on (there was a weird but thought-provoking show on when we went) in the other buildings, but it’s free and the main house provides a glimpse of how the Portuguese lived in Macau...More

Beautifully maintained, they give it for people to come and take pictures outside, so you see going to be brides taking pictures with their best friends and fiancées. 01 building showcases the yester year things used by those days people.

I found these houses interesting, though it won't take you long to visit, as only 1 or possibly 2 are open to the public. But the one that was showed some details of how they lived in an earlier period (1920s), and I found that...More

The five bungalows in a row looked more like the row houses in any metropolitan city. The history associated with them is interesting but will fascinate only history lovers. Only the last bungalow is worth seeing from inside. but that too was not like a...More
