Macao Museum of the Cultural Affairs Bureau extends the exhibition “A Pearl of the Sea” until 6 Sept
The exhibition is divided into four sections, namely “Geographical Change”, “Past View and New Image”, “Infrastructure Constructions” and “A New Chapter”, illustrating the urban changes of Macao since the 19th century. A total of 101 exhibits are showcased in the form of maps, photographs, physical objects from Macao’s handover ceremony, and different sets of backgrounds, in order to present the evolution of Macao from a small fishing village to a metropolis. One of the highlights of the exhibition is the National Day pailou (a decorated arch) erected in the main hall of the museum. The structure captures the style and craftsmanship of the pailou constructed by local residents to celebrate the National Day in the last century, which is significant for the depiction of the historical landscape of Macao.
To further prevent the spread of the pandemic, cleaning and disinfection procedures have been reinforced in the Macao Museum; upon entry, all visitors are required to wear face masks, undergo body temperature checks, present their personal health declarations and cooperate with crowd control measures. All hands-on exhibits and guided tours are temporarily out of service.
