A delightful

Must-see sightseeing during a visit to Macau.
A delightful trip to scape the hustle. Constructed about 150 years ago, It has been restored and reopened to the public in 2010.

Many picture opportunities!
Jan 2020
Firstly it is free admission, so that is already a thumbs up! hehe..
You can dont bother about the write ups and the various exhibitions pieces of god knows what.
Just head around the place, and you will find many nice interior places to snap those nostalgic photos you have been craving for in Macau.
Make your photos black-white to get a more fuller effect!!

Overall, if you are a photo-junkie, this is a place for you!

The best historical site in Macau
Nov 2019
The Mandarin House is a real gem. Hidden just behind Lilau Square and surrounded by modern residential buildings, it catapults the visitor 100 years back into a glorious past. The house has been gently renovated so that the place still looks authentic. Good written explanations especially at the beginning of the tour about the history of the family, the house and Macau from that time.

Apart from us there were very few visitors (in contrast to the famous St. Paul's ruins). We were also positively surprised that the entrance is free of charge.

For us the Mandarin House was the highlight among the historical sights in Macau and is a must do on the list for every Macau visitor interested in culture.

Beautiful even in rainy days
Aug 2019
We visited Mandarin House twice. First in late afternoon and then again in morning time (dressed in Qi Pao to take photos:) ). During our time in Macau we experiences typhoon so rain was on and off. This old Chinese residence was a relief from chaos in downtown Senado Square. It was nearly empty (but we met 2 big groups of students in our 2nd visit). Many rooms to explore historic lives in their time. Ancient Chinese architecture and small exhibitions. No entrance fee. A must see in Macau.

Important Historical Landmark in Macau
Mar 2019 • Solo
Very interesting place. A good example of the old traditional Chinese houses. Lots of history related to this place. Under renovations, some areas need major work. Still, the exhibitions were very interesting and well organized - whoever is doing it is well prepared and knowledgeable. The “museum shop” has some very good books and magazines on Macau. Definitely a place to visit in Macau.

If you come to Macau, you can not miss the visit this house! Check it out. Also during the new year festival they do the dragon dance.

Lovely typical old Chinese residence
Oct 2019 • Couples
We really loved discovering this old Chinese residence hidden in the streets of Macau. While downtown Macau was unbelievably crowded, this museum house was nearly empty and offered some relief from the hectic Macau streets. They have nice small exhibitions about the building’s history, building materials and styles. You can wander around the house and garden and imagine how life must have been back in the days. This is definitely a must see in Macau, certainly as it’s free of charge.

Historic, yes, but a bit run-down
Aug 2019
No doubt the Mandarin House has good historic value, and it's nice that entry is free. I was a bit disappointed, however, to find that the house is not well-maintained. A lot of rooms are empty. There are some nice signs in Chinese and English talking about the history of the place, and the building itself has nice architecture, but it has an almost abandoned feel to it which is a real shame. If they fixed it up and put some period furnishings in it this could be a real gem. But worth a stop for a few minutes en route to A-Ma Temple.
