The square also houses a Time Capsule, which was created as a symbol of the Portuguese government acknowledging China’s promise to uphold Macau’s autonomy for 50 years following its sovereignty, granted in 1999. The Time Capsule was buried on December 18, 1999, and will be opened again in 2049. This is a unique historical attraction that you can only find in this part of the city.

However, when visiting the Cultural Centre Plaza, the most popular attraction here is the Macao Cultural Centre. The facade is a sight to behold with its sleek lines and minimalist design. It was built in 1999 to provide a modern venue where cultural and classical performances can be showcased. Inside, there is a grand auditorium that can accommodate 1,076 spectators and a smaller auditorium for 389 people, suitable for cinematic shows and smaller performances. An interpretation booth is available for both, equipped with state-of-the-art light and sound systems.

Another highlight here is the Macao Museum of Art, which can be found inside. It houses a 4,000 square metre large area dedicated to exhibitions focusing on Chinese traditional art and private collections. Visitors can spend time browsing its collection, as numerous pieces will inspire wonder. The museum regularly participates in educational programs focusing on art education. Guided tours can be availed, and the public is welcome to attend their talks and workshops. This is the best place to visit if you want to learn about the art scene.

The Cultural Centre Plaza and its surrounding attractions are a must-visit for history and culture enthusiasts.
