The Grand Prix Museum contains exhibits that are related to Grand Prix worldwide including photos, videos, illustrated articles, cups, records of champions and some commemorative items.

The Macau Grand Prix now enjoys a history of over 60 years starting in 1954. The museum with its many items focusing on the competition has become a must-see place for F1 enthusiasts. More than twenty formula cars and motorcycles once driven by world-renowned drivers such as Eduarfo de Carvalho, Michael Schumacher and David Coulthard, are on exhibition. The most eye-catching one is the racing car placed in the center of the hall. It was once driven by Aryton Senna, a famous formula car driver who died at the 1994 San Marino GP. It is a red and white Formula 3 racing car along with his racing cloth and helmet are displayed.
