"After Macao's return to the motherland in 1999, museums of various subjects mushroomed, including museums of maritime affairs, telecommunications, as well as museums of historical figures, history and arts," a visitor said.
MACAO, May 19 (Xinhua) -- Standing on a podium and holding high golden "trophies", a grey-haired couple posed with laugh at the Macao Grand Prix Museum of the Macao Special Administrative Region (SAR).
After the "award ceremony", the couple also experienced motorcycling on screen, photographing in the virtual costumes of their favorite racers, and "maintenance" of the racing vehicles.
"These interactive experiences make the whole visit very special and unforgettable," said the wife, a Macao resident surnamed Chan, who chose to come to the museum on Wednesday, the International Museum Day, for free.
The museum said it received nearly 900 visitors on Wednesday thanks to the free ticketing policy and promotional activities, such as interactive games and gifts with unique elements of the museum.
The Macao Grand Prix Museum is among the over 30 museums scattered in Macao that showcase the city's unique culture and history over the past four centuries where the East meets the West.
