Cultural Club information
The Pawnshop Museum is housed in the former pawnshop built in 1917, with the fortresslike eight-storey granite tower and slotted windows, where goods were stored on racks or in safes. Sharing the same building is the Cultural Club , which claims to look at various aspects of everyday life in Macau but is little more than a souvenir shop.
