Macao Museum Reviews
성 바울 성당 근처에 자리잡고 있고, 마카오의 근현대사를 알기 쉽게 설명이 되어 있어 좋았습니다. 더운 날씨에 쾌적하게 방문할 수도 있어 좋았습니다. more »Located near St. Paul's Cathedral, the modern history of Macao is well-documented and easy to understand. The room was clean and comfortable.

The Museum is not too big because it consists of only 3 floors, but the way to here needs a struggle because the location is on the hill after passing the ruins of St Paul's cathedral.
It is just next to the hubbub of The Ruin of St Paul's. However, it was quieter here. Had to pay a small entrance fee, but it was well worth it. No doubt small, the museum is quite detailed in showcasing the lives of the people of old Macau and how the Portuguese influenced them. There are 3 levels and English explanation was widely available.
The museum is located near Ruins of St. Paul's. Expect to spend around an hour to see around in the museum. This place is informative and visitors can learn about the history and culture of Macau.
