In this paper, we consider the Cauchy problem of the compressible magneto–micropolar fluids system in $\mathbb{R}^3$ with initial data close to some constant steady state. Based on the spectral analysis on the semigroup generated by the linearized equations and the nonlinear energy estimates, we show that the solution of the magneto–micropolar fluids system converges to its constant equilibrium state at the exact same $L^2$-decay rate as the linearized equations, which shows that the convergence rate is optimal.
