Taipa-Houses Museum

I am in constant awe of this small big city and learning new things about it every day makes me feel immersed in the culture of the people around me. The Taipa-Houses Museum is definitely worth a visit. It’s a beautiful tourist spot and we love its surrounding area.

We always drop by almost every week because of its proximity to Our Lady of Carmel Chuch where we hear mass every week so it was a surprise to see it finally open and we quickly rushed inside to view the artefacts on display. It was free entrance when we dropped by at the museum but please see below for more details.

We saw an interesting mix of Chinese and European furniture recreated to portray the history of Macau and its residents. The tapestries and woodworks were distinctive to the region and the prominence of catholic culture could be seen all over the place.

The five green architectural structures showcase cultural relics and heritage of Macau. The neoclassical designs were built in 1921 and served as residences for civil servants of high rank and Macanese families. The colonial style houses serve as a reminder great Portuguese influence in the city and a huge part of its history!
