Taipa Houses 100th Anniversary Activities

These five houses, built in 1921, once served as the residences of senior civil servants, also namely Macanese families; in 1992, they were acknowledged as a building complex of architectural value. In 1999, the government decided to revamp the houses completely as a museum site. In 2016, they were transformed into the ‘Macanese Living Museum’, ‘Exhibitions Gallery’, ‘Creative Casa’, ‘Nostalgic House’ and ‘House for Receptions’ from west to east. The Taipa Houses became a showcase of not only the culture of the Portuguese-speaking countries but of culture from all over the world.
