We went to see the Maderia history museum only to find it closed, but we were handed a leaflet on this little treasure, a very comfortable cinema telling us the story of the Island a must if you love Maderia.
Unfortunately the Madiera Museum was closed, but the Film Experience was probably better because it provided a complete story of the history of this beautiful island

As such it has a very personal "lived in feel" unlike most museums.
This museum has a small but fabulous tile collection from other European countries as well as Portugal.The main exhibit is comprised of various rooms bedecked with lovely furniture,paintings and artifacts.

In a palace where the bishops of Funchal lived in the sixteenth century, it is one of the oldest museums of Funchal and offers various collections of paintings, sculptures and jewellery.
This is one of the world's great museums for sacred art.

Really lovely historic house full of antiques laid out very well (unlike the museum across the road which is a jumble) The silver collection in the old wine cellar was un-expected and impressive.

I initially thought the 5 euros admission a little expensive compared to other Museums but I have to say I found it really interesting and enjoyable.
The Madeira Story is situated behind the cable car in Funchal and is, in essence, the museum containing the history of Madeira from its beginning through its history to the present day It gives a great insight fro...

Surprisingly interesting, particularly if you like Museums wewll st out and easy to follow although I don 't think they expect too many english speaking visitors as more of the explanations were in Portuguese.
This museum catalogues the fascinating history of supply electricity and street lighting the islands of Madeira and Porto Santo

To say it is a toy museum is doing this lovely and quirky museum an injustice.

We found this to be one of the best museums exhibiting vintage cameras, binoculars and telescopes that we have ever seen.
Fascinating museum filled with an amazing collection of cameras of all formats and ages.

After we tried several times during the last years and the museum was closed when we had been there (mostly December) this was the first time we had the chance to visit the collection.

Save some money and buy the 5 Euro ticket for all three museums (the main museum, the nucleo of santa barbera which has some more modern exhibits, and sacred art museum) All three are in walking distance of one an...

The theme of the museum is that of country life - how rural people on Madeira made a living from the land from sugar,wheat, flax and vines and from fishing.
Loved this little gem of a museum.

Stumbled upon the Palace/Museum which doubles as a military barracks while out and about on the sea front, the building is unmistakable and a fortress from the 16th Century.
Whilst wandering around Funchal I spied this old fort with a field gun outside and when I went over for a closer look realised it was a museum.

The size of the museum in a tiny fishing village was awe inspiring and the range of hot metal and wooden type, as well as typesetting and printing machines must be one of the most comprehensive collections under o...
I'm interested in printing and greatly enjoyed this museum which cost me only 2 Euro to get in.
