It was a nice Sunday afternoon to have a look inside, was free of entry. Not many people, was very relaxing. Bring your own water. We did go at the end of October. Hope this helps.

We were recommended to visit the museum after taking the Free Faro Walking Tour and we were not disappointed. Not a large museum but a great cross section of the history of the Algarve

It is an unassuming building and free to enter. We were greatly surprised of the quality of the displayed and the architecture of this historic building. There are displays of roman artefacts as well as modern art intermingled with Portuguese history. It took us about...More

Free on Sundays after 3pm. Not really suitable for kids. Great location in an old convent. Mostly stone relics and religious old masters but some temporary exhibitions of modern art.
