Revamped Grand Prix Museum officially opens
All the thrills and glamour of Macao’s most famous sporting event are on show in the museum which is gleaming after a lengthy renovation.
Macao’s top officials witnessed the reopening of the Grand Prix Museum yesterday in the wake of a major renovation.
Chief Executive Ho Iat Seng, Secretary for Economy and Finance Lei Wai Nong, and Macao Government Tourism Office (MGTO) Director Maria Helena de Senna Fernandes took part in the fortuitous lion eye-dotting ceremony in front of the museum in Zape.
During the trial operation between March and May, the museum received close to 12,000 visitors, including 33 delegations from 140 organisations from the tourism sector, the media and government entities. Visitors rated the exhibits and guided tour service “most satisfactory”, while the most popular interactive games are G-Force Challenge, MotoVR Race Experience, and Pit Garage.
Currently, the maximum capacity of the museum is 2,200 visitors per day, although, under the Health Bureau’s (SSM) Covid-19 pandemic measures, the museum has a daily quota of 1,100 visitors for the public this month, based on a maximum capacity of 284 visitors every two hours.
The museum is now selling admission tickets at full price; timed-entry tickets can be purchased 30 days in advance and up to one day before the visit via the official website, while immediate entry tickets are available for sale at the museum.
The opening hours are 10 am – 6 pm. The museum is closed on Tuesdays.
