Although not a large museum, this house is a perfect reflection of way of upper-class living at the first half of 20th century. Really a hidden gem, strongly recommend!

Senor Almeida was a collector in a big way. His particular jones was clocks and watches but some time he collected the whole room to give the clock perspective. A wonderful house full of clocks, watches, art, tapestry, jewelry, china and more

As others have said, this is a terrific personal collection of a wealthy industrialist. Interestingly, although we read about it in a guide book, we had a bit of trouble finding it (near a metro stop) because the locals of whom we inquired had never...More

Mr. Medeiros was wealthy and collected things of beauty. We were impressed with the watches, the furniture, the china, the house itself etc. Luckily there were some details available on his private life, otherwise it would have been rather sterile. Take note of the seating...More
