Established em 1917 by local merchant Kou Ho Ning, Tak Seng On was once one of the most prolific businesses in Macau. It was one of the first ones to open and it’s also the last of its kind.
Closed in 1993 and lay vacant for many years before the government’s Cultural Affairs Bureau purchased it in 2000 and restored it.
On 21 March 2003, it was opened to the public as a museum and now gives both locals and visitors a glimpse of the pawn businesses’ importance during its heyday.
In 2004, this unique museum received an Honourable Mention in the UNESCO 2004 Asia-Pacific Awards for the Conservation of Cultural Heritage.
With different rooms, there are several informational boards written in English, Portuguese and Chinese, vintage abacus and other measuring and counting instruments, old accounting books and other treasures.
Casa de Penhores Virtude e Sucesso é o nome em português da Tak Seng On criada em Macau em 1917.
Em 2004, este museu recebeu uma Menção Honrosa no Prémio UNESCO 2004 da Ásia-Pacífico para a Conservação do Património Cultural.
