Macao Museum

08-11-2010 14:13 BJT

Macau Museum was inaugurated on 18th of April, 1998. Its aim is to preserve the cultural traditions, usages and habits, which specifically belong to Macau, in a place where East, and West have so peculiarly learnt how to meet and to live side by side along the centuries.

Located at the Monte Fort and facing St.Paul's Ruins (the entrance is made by this side), the Museum also occupies the ancient Fortress, which, dominating the Inner Harbour, was built by the Jesuits at the beginning of the 17th century. Next to the fortress was the famous St.Paul's College also called the College of the Mother of God (considered as the first Western-type University in the Far East). The college was connected to the church bearing the same name and whose facade remains to be admired by all.
