The night watchers of ancient China announced the time and reminded people to take precautions against fire and theft. The Patane Night Watch House, the last to exist in Macao, reflects this past practice via the thematic exhibition halls of ‘Macao’s Night Watch Houses’ and ‘Image of Night Watchmen’. Employing images and documents recounting the history of the House, visitors can view gongs, wooden beaters, fire hose nozzles, silver whistles and service receipts spiced up by graphic images of night watchmen created by Macao artists illustrating the story of the city’s guardians enhanced by interviews with former watchmen.
