Heritage Exhibition of a Traditional Pawnshop Business

The Heritage Exhibition of a Traditional Pawnshop Business (Chinese: 典當業展示館; Portuguese: Espaço Patrimonial uma Casa de Penhores Tradicional) is a museum in Sé, Macau, China.

The building was originally established in 1917 as the Virtue and Success Pawnshop by Kou Ho Neng and Wong Hung Shan. The shop was closed in 1993 due to the decline in pawnshop business. In 2000, the Secretariat for Social Affairs and Culture restored the shop building to its original design. It was then opened to the public on 21 March 2003. The building received an Honorable Mention in the UNESCO 2004 Asia-Pacific Awards for the Conservation of Cultural Heritage and was selected as an Urban Best Practices Area by Shanghai World Expo 2010.
