A very nice area to visit in Macau that is somewhat of an unknown to most visitors is the Taipa Houses Museum located on a nice promenade and artificial lake in Taipa Village. Here you will find a lake, small wooded area and open space, which is used for various flower and plant exhibitions throughout the year. You will also... More

Is one of the historical places to visit in Macau, very European influenced, located in Taipa Island where the Cotai strip is. Highly recommended to visit, great for taking pictures.

Free of charge, this musseum has a great setting to understand and see the first par of XX Century style of living in old Macau. Well prepared, maintained, and safe place for tourist.

Taipa Houses is a collection of historical Portuguese style houses that used to belong to civil servants. Well preserved, worth a trip but not a must. It's a bit out of the way so it does not attract a lot of tourists.

Well the four houses are a display of how old settlers from Portugal lived in Macou. The last three houses show pictures and for me that wasn't good. The first house shows you the exterior and furniture. I would rather go to an Amtrak dealer.

This place is not crowded compared to the famous ruins of st paul (ruinas de sao paolo). You can enter the houses without any fee. Practically gratis, just take the travellator from the venetian west lobby (outside the west lobby). The surroundings area is quiet and perfect place to relax. There is a beautiful garden in front of the houses.... More

Just besides the Taipa village. This place is likes by couples to be to take wedding photos. Some buildings are opened to the public to view the interior decorations in the past. It is really a building museum.

Very disappointed because originally visited on Monday on arrival found out most of Macau attractions close on Mondays. Went the next day and only one house was open - no photos allowed another "house" open but now a store. Too much construction around spoiling the ambience.

I went to the Taipa Houses Museum with my family, members including grandpa who is nearly 90, and my 4 years old nephew. We spent nearly 4 hours there. In front of the 5 buildings, there's a big garden with a lots of flowers and settings for photo taking. Kids are running around and enjoying their time to know different... More
