The showcases of donated items in the hall will display the relics donated by warm-hearted people recently, enabling the visitors to know more about the details of the heritage items donated to the Macao Museum, encounter the history preserved on the streets and evoke collective memories.

The Macao Museum is open for free on 15th of every month. On Sundays local residents can enjoy free entry with the Macao Resident Identity Card or the student card.
