The museum is conveniently located. Opens 7 days 10:30am to 19:00. The only rest day is first Monday of every month. It shows how the Pawn shop stored their goods. How a Pawn shop looks like inside. Interesting. 15 minutes visit will do.

The setup at the entrance was interesting with a screen behind which the person who was pawning something had to look up at the staff sitting in the caged area. The storage area is in a tower-like building in the back. As the storage area...More

Pawnstars wouldn't know this place if they could even find their way to Macau. Very cool, ancient pawnshop. I thing the most interesting thing was the tower in the rear, which served as a strong hold for all the valuables. Yeah, it's quick and won't...More

Somewhat mediocre. At most, you can peep in from outside but definitely I wouldn't pay to go in - it took us 5 minutes to finish seeing this.

Definitely worth a stop if you have ample of time in the old quarter. This heritage institution would benefit more with further authentic artifacts beyond its first floor. Its present exhibits are mediocre at best.
