  • 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.
