If you aren't a fan of history then come here purely for the air con and the peace and quiet. However if you love history this will be a great glimpse into the past of the city of Macau.

This crypt was a little less creepy than others. The bones are laying in floor to ceiling cases with glass windows for viewing. The artifacts in the museum are worth a quick look.
