Wine Museum; Glass half empty

MGTO has not yet decided to relocate the Wine Museum to Coloane

Coloane may not be the ‘ideal location for the new Wine Museum,’ Business Daily has learned from Macao Government Tourism Office (MGTO).
The Office claims it is mulling the location for accommodating the new facilities of the museum given that ‘the renovation project of the Grand Prix Theme Museum will soon begin,’ thereby forcing the relocation of the Wine Museum.
Both museums currently share the facilities of the Tourism Activities Centre (CAT) in ZAPE, across from Lotus Flower Square.
In previous replies to Macau Business, MGTO explained that although Coloane has been selected as a strong contender to accommodate the new Wine Museum since at least July 2016 a final decision about its future location was only likely to be announced during the presentation of the MSAR Government’s Policy Address for 2017, this coming November.
According to MGTO’s spokesperson, one of the reasons that might push the government to not consider Coloane a favourable location for the museum concerns “limitations relating to the conservation and construction in this zone [Coloane],” which would cause “the total area [to] be smaller than the existing Wine Museum.”
