China Macao, Casas-Museu da Taipa

The Taipa Houses-Museum (in Chinese: 龍環葡韻住宅式博物館; in Portuguese: Casas-Museu da Taipa) is housed in a set of old houses on the south side of Taipa, one of the islands that forms part of Macau.

The museum complex consists of five houses displaying various artefacts and exhibits. The houses were built in 1921. These colonial residences were restored to recreate houses of well-off Portuguese families living in Macau during the first half of the 20th century. The last house was restored in 1999. The Taipa Houses-Museum opened on 5 December 1999 and is administered by the Macau Civil and Municipal Affairs Bureau. The houses used to look out over the sea, but due to land reclamation of the Cotai Strip between Taipa and Coloane, they are now next to a small lake.
