Museu do Centro Científico e Cultural de MacauThe Museum of the Scientific and Cultural Centre of Macao (MCCCM) is located in Junqueira and was opened in 1999.

It features two different but complementary exhibitions:

The 1st exhibition invites us to know the cultural aspects of the Luso-Chinese secular relations. Here, we are introduced on the historical and cultural condition of Macau in the 16th and 17th centuries. This is done using interactive multimedia, in which the visitor makes a dynamic journey through history, discovering Macau.

Museu do Centro Científico e Cultural de MacauWith this exhibition, the MCCCM seeks to highlight the contribution of Macanese as best mediators of the encounter between East and West.

The 2nd exhibition has the largest and most precious collection of Chinese art, existing in the Iberian Peninsula. Covering a temporality of about 4000 years was largely acquired to the Macanese collector Antonio Sapag. The highlights are the collections of terracotta, stoneware, bronzes, porcelains, paintings, silverware and various other everyday objects of artistic value. Finally, visitors may discover the beautiful costumes known as semi-formal or “Mandarin”, in addition to the numismatic collection, which brings together examples of the Neolithic to the present days.
