The Taipa Houses-Museum, which includes five houses with Macanese architectural characteristics, is considered a cultural relic and heritage of the island.
The Taipa Houses-Museum was built in 1921--the houses were originally the residences of high-level superior civil servants and Macanese families.
While Macanese Houses showcase colonial-style living spaces and Houses of the Portugal Regions focus on regional Portuguese traditional costumes and crafts, Houses of the Islands offer a rare glimpse into the history of Taipa and Coloane Islands.
Art exhibitions from around the world are displayed at the Exhibition Gallery, and official receptions and cultural events are held at the House of Reception.
