MENADO, mā̇-nä′dō̇. The capital of the Dutch Residency of Menado, in Northern Celebes. It is situated near the extremity of the northeastern peninsula of the island, on both sides of the river Tondano (Map: East Indies, F 4). It has an ethnological museum and is defended by the old Fort Amsterdam. Its unsafe roadstead detracts greatly from its commercial importance. Population, in 1895, 8996, including over 500 Europeans.
