Museum of Taipa and Coloane History

Built in the late 19th century and formerly known as the Municipal Council of the Islands, the two-floor complex has passed through the governance of Municipal Commission of the Islands, the Municipal Council of the Islands and the Provisional Municipal Council of the Islands; and its role switched to preserving and promoting the history and culture of Taipa and Coloane in 2006. In this in-house exhibition, a collection of findings and relics uncovered from different archaeological excavations over the past years are displayed on the ground floor. You will sense the wisdom of the early inhabitants through the exhibits. After the visit, don’t forget to taste authentic delicacies that local food stalls nearby offered and enjoy the picturesque view of this Museum in the backdrop of old Taipa Village.
