The Taipa Houses Museum is housed in a set of old houses in Taipa, Macau. The Taipa Houses Museum is quite different from the other museums of Macau.

The "Macanese House" is one of the Macau's typical houses in colonial style. It reminds visitors a period of Portuguese splendor that was characterized by frequent affluence of the British, Manchu, Mandarins and traders in this tiny territory.
The Taipa Houses Museum, the Carmo Church, the Carmo Library, and the two little gardens, all together, form one of the eight views of Macau. All of these attractions are located in one area, near and along the Avenida da Praia.
The government of Macau decided, in the late 90's, to fully remodel the houses and turn them into the Taipa Houses Museum. This is to recognize the important architectural value of the houses and the history that these houses have.
