The Museum of Sacred Heart and Crypt is nestled in the heart of Macau, right under the Ruins of St. Paul and comprises a collection of Catholic artifacts. The museum exhibits crucifixes, statues, paintings and other religious art collected from various churches. One of the highlights of the Museum of Sacred Heart and Crypt is the oil painting of St. Archangel Michael that survived the fire of 1835 and dates back to the 17th century.
In the center of the Crypt, carved on the granite rock, lie the remains of a tomb, which might have belonged to the founder of the St. Paul’s College, Father Alexander Valignano. Along the sidewalls, there are relics of Japanese and Vietnamese martyrs.
Opening hours: Monday from 9:00am to 6:00pm; Tuesday from 9:00am to 2:00pm; Wednesday to Sunday from 9:00am to 6:00pm (no admittance after 5:30 pm)
