Divided in two areas, namely “Macao in the Old Days” and “Today’s Macao”, the exhibition features a total of over 180 selected postcards and associated items from the museum’s collection, leading visitors to get to know the city’s “Coastal Scenery”, “Elegant Architecture” and “Lush Gardens” in those bygone days, as well as the characteristics of the small city, including “Interlaced Lanes”, “Accessible Transportation”, “Recreation and Entertainment” and “Outstanding Talents and Profound Culture”, thereby manifesting Macau’s social and cultural nature highlighting the co-existence of different ethnics and cultures.
In order to complement the exhibition, multimedia installations and an education area will be available in the venue, allowing visitors an overview of the changes in Macau’s landscape in an interactive manner. Free souvenir postcards will also be distributed onsite with free postal service provided for a limited number of visitors on a first-come, first-served basis; each person may enjoy the service once only. In addition, the Macao Museum launches an online virtual reality (VR) exhibition dedicated to this showcase, so that visitors can enjoy it online via the museum’s website anytime and anywhere. Details will be announced in due course.
