A much better visit than the famous ruins of st paul

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... read more

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

Travelled by the new travelletor from West Lobby of Venetian Hotel all the way to Taipa Village area. Houses are well-preserved with free-admission museums on the vicinity. One museum one house. Interesting. Should go to learn about the heritage of Taipa area.

I visited when on a trip to the Macau Grand Prix and was there for a event dinner as a guest so did see the museum per se. What I did see was the lovely location and the fine houses that make up the museum. I think it would be worth a visit if in the area.

This place is very peaceful, with the Portugal style, I found this place very nice because not many locals would go there, also visitors would not go there since it was not a tourist attraction. When I was young, my mother took me there, at that time there were swans in the pond, and i enjoyed to feed them with... More
