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.
A nice place to spend half an hour before you visit the cannons.
A nice central historical museum in Macau. Free on some days, and cheap on others.
Very interessting museum in the heart of macau. History of macau and the region is told in an well understandable way. Good value for the low price.
The Macao Museum (MOP15 per person) is probably the best museum in Macau for visitors interested to learn about local history, heritage and culture. Located within Monte Forte, next to the Ruins of St. Paul, you can easily spend 30 minutes or much longer going through 35 exhibitions spaced out over three floors at the Macao Museum. It is also well worth visiting the top level garden area where you can find nice 360 degree views of the city. Here you can find a nice collection of artefacts, displays related Portuguese colonisation, role of religion, sea trade and other industries that have, along with local customs and traditions, shaped Macau into the place we have today. Overall, it is a good museum providing visitors with helpful context for what they will see during your sightseeing endeavours within the Historic Centre of Macau. In this regard, it is well worth the MOP15 (USD$2) entry fee and a bit of your time during visits to Macau. Note: The museum is open Tuesday - Sundays (10-6pm), closed on Mondays and national holidays. Note: Other popular museums in Macau to consider include the Grand Prix Museum, Wine Museum, Maritime Museum and the Space Museum.
