The Museum Of Macau is a historical and cultural museum with a vast number of objects of great historical value, which demonstrates the way of life and cultures of the various communities which have been inhabited the city for ages.

The first floor is a short and comparative presentation of the way western and Chinese civilizations were developed before the arrival of the Portuguese in the Pearl River Delta in the 16th century. Besides, history of Macau, commercial activities, religions and cultures of the two civilizations are also displayed. Mounting the stairs to the second floor, visitors have the opportunity to come into contact with different aspects of the popular art and traditions of Macau; such as people's daily lives, entertainment, religious ceremonies and traditional festivals. The third floor shows contemporary Macau including the characteristic aspects of city life. The way Macau has been portrayed in literature and the arts is prominently highlighted.

The Museum Of Macau is located in the Monte Fort, which was built by the Jesuits in the early 17th century. For a long time, the Fort was the city's principal military defence structure where public access was restricted. In 1965 this Fortress was converted into the Meteorological Services and later opened to the public. Built on top of the Mount Hill, the Monte Fort offers a panoramic view of the city. On its west is the Ruins of St. Paul's. On 15th July 2005, the Historic Centre of Macau was officially listed as UNESCO World Cultural Heritage. The Monte Fort and the Ruins of St. Paul's are significant historical monuments of the Centre.

The Museum Of Macau was opened on 18th April 1998, consisting of two underground levels and a third one above the fortress' top platform where the old Meteorological Services is housed. The architectural character and special configuration of the architecture has been retained and preserved.
