Former Iec Long Firecracker Factory

Macao's firecracker industry began to develop rapidly in the 1920s. With the establishment of several factories in Taipa, the industry became an economic backbone in Macao's industrial development at that time. With firecrackers serving as vital export products, a great number of Taipa residents engaged in firecracker production during its heyday, especially from the 1950s to 1970s, and the firecracker industry became the main income base of people's livelihood, particularly in regard to the community in Taipa, therefore playing an important role in Macao’s economic history.

Former Iec Long Firecracker Factory has a history of nearly 100 years and covers an area of around  25,000 square meters. The site still preserves the original layout and environment of the former production structures, making it the only well-preserved heritage site of the firecracker industry in Macao, thereby reflecting the prosperity of the local traditional firecracker manufacturing industry in the 20th century, while also bearing witness to the city’s modern industrial development. The site includes a 400-metre long walkway, an exhibition hall and a cultural and creative products’ souvenir shop.
