I'm not really a museum person just being honest. I think overall it's a good museum has some great views of city outside w/ the fort & cannons. So I didn't really spend much time in the museum I enjoyed outside views much more..

A nice small museum. Small fee to get in. We didn't plan on coming here but as we had walked to the Ruins of St Pauls it was just across the road so we saw the opportunity to visit. Beautiful ancient artefacts as you'd expect from a museum. A lot showcase Asias history which was cool. Id say visit it... More

Definitely worth checking out, head up to the top and enjoy the view over the bay. You can get photos with the canons or explore the lovely gardens. Lots of grassy areas to sit and enjoy the sunlight.

Easy to find, and cheap entry, even free to Seniors. Very well laid out, with plenty of modern exhibits and some excellent models. Perfectly sized for one visit - of 1 to 2 hours. The museum is easy to walk around, with plenty of signs and information. A greeat place to visit for background to your Macau visit.

Adjacent to the Ruins of St Paul. The Macau Museum is a comprehensive exhibits of the culture, lifestyle, practices and customs. Must not give this a miss. We were there on 2 Jan and admission was free!

We had a good hour here, no need to have a formalised tour, as the museum is easy to walk around, with plenty of signage everywhere, so easy to find your way around, and easy to get a taste of the history, without information overload. Really well laid out - staff friendly too. One floor was shut, but was enough... More

If you want to know why Macau is different from Hong Kong and Mainland China, you must visit it. This is very near around 50 meter from St Paul Church. You can climb nearby rock and then can enter this museum or directly enter from the proper entrance. They have very minimal ticket charge.
