Great restored example of traditional Chinese architecture. Well worth the visit to this museum -- nicely restored, including a few pieces of traditional furniture; really well done -- not many tourists or visitors; very quiet and relaxing!

I had visited Macau many times but this was the first time I visited this house. The house was built in 19th century. You would like it if you are quite interested in Chinese culture and architect.
