The Carpentery Guildhall is built to dedicated to Chinese eminent craftsman Lu Ban with an aim to preserve the waning art of homebuilding carpentry in the region. The Woodcraft Works of Master Lu Ban Exhibition Room made its public debut after an opening ceremony during the Feast of Lu Ban. The exhibition room sits inside the Carpentry Guildhall, an establishment erected in the Qing Dynasty and is now situated in the Macau peninsula’s bustling downtown.
A statue of the great carpenter is enshrined inside the guildhall, which also serves as the headquarters of the Macao Carpentry Trade Union. The building is built back in 1840 and it is later burned down by a fire at 1855 and funds were raised to rebuilt the premises into what it look today.
The exhibition center is now open to the public from 10.00 a.m. to 6.00 p.m. every day except Wednesday.
