‘A Pearl of the Sea – Exhibition of Macao’s Urban Evolution’ Opens, Showcasing the History of Macao’
Macao has been increasing land resources through reclamation since the mid-19th century, which subsequently has had a profound impact on its overall urban development. The gathering and integration of different cultures over the past centuries have resulted in the combination of Chinese and Western styles in the city’s architecture and the emergence of new landscapes amid urban development. ‘A Pearl of the Sea – Exhibition of Macao’s Urban Evolution’ features 101 exhibits divided into four sections: ‘Geographical Change’, ‘Past View and New Image’, ‘Infrastructure Constructions’ and ‘A New Chapter’, seeking to give both residents and tourists a better understanding of Macao’s achievements in a variety of fields over the last 20 years since the handover, and present a brand new historical image of Macao. Urban functions of Macao have been improving with the completion of large infrastructure projects; through the public transport facilities such as ferry terminals, sea-crossing bridges, the airport and the Light Rapid Transit, Macao is connected to neighbouring cities and many other places around the world.
To complement the exhibition, an educational area and multimedia installations have been made available inside the venue to give visitors a more realistic and intriguing experience of Macao’s urban development. The Macao Museum is open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. (the ticket booth closes at 5:30 p.m.).
