The Natural and Agrarian Museum tries to show the visitor the abundance of the fauna, the flora and the importance of the activities of the primary sector in the economic life of the Taipa and Coloane Islands - both in the previous and especially, the modern times.

This is important in order for you to realize that Macau has limited resources but an abundant species of both flora and fauna. This is in accordance to the government's objective to not let the whole land area of Macau be overcome with high rises and commercial buildings. And Coloane is just the perfect place to fulfill such an objective.

The Seac Pai Van Park, where the Natural and Agrarian Museum is located, is very appropriate because of the many attractions and adventures that you can do inside the park. There's a mini-zoo inside the park with different kinds of animals like ostriches and monkeys, and there's also an aviary with several types of birds. Furthermore, just in front of the Natural and Agrarian Museum, there is an adventure trail that leads to the A-Ma shrine at the top of the hill, for the adventure-seekers' delight.

Inside the Natural and Agrarian Museum are different kinds of stones and fossils that were dug up from archaeological sites in Macau. Stones that were used for carving, for cooking, and even bones of dead animals can be found inside the Natural and Agrarian Museum.

There is also an exhibition of the different livelihoods of the people of Macau in the past; examples of which are fishing and rice harvesting. The different apparatus and machines that people used back then are also exhibited in this part of the museum, as well as the modern tools and machines that are used today.

In the second part of the Natural and Agrarian Museum, there are different kinds and varieties of insects and small animals that were found in Macau. They also try to imitate the atmosphere and ambience of the forest by the sounds of chirping birds, by bringing in plants and by having clear glass windows so that the outside, which is abundant with tall grasses and ponds, can be seen.

Using written and audio-visual supports, the Natural and Agrarian Museum offers the visitor the possibility to interactively know general aspects of the geography of Macau as well as its climate, important but rather unknown characteristics of the natural environment and the use of the plants of Macau by the Chinese Traditional Medicine.
