The Macao Museum merits an hour or so of tourists time.... it is not big but well explains the history of Macau, its people and its culture. You will get a glimpse of the old Macau, the old Macau unspoilt by casinos and high end...More

Very well put together museum. Next to the Fort. Nice big exhibits. You learn a lot about Macao history and culture after the visit. We were there on a Tuesday and it was free. Definitely worth a visit!

You have to pay a fee to enter this museum. It was quite interesting to learn about the history of Macao and western and Chinese cultures blended on this island.
