  • A museum well organized, with good collection. Good to visit, only a few more explanations of the pieces to help and inspire the mind.

  • Good Museum with an interesting collection. There's little room in the input intended for children where they can color drawings. On Sundays free admission.

  • Very good. The ticket is cheap. Museum full of spoils found in excavations made in Braga. Of various eras. I love the models, very well prepared and that show us as much as were the buildings as it was people's lives. Not to be missed. The only downside is the Roman mosaic that is found in the yard not be well signposted.

  • Excellent expository to core knowledge of prehistory to the Roman period. I highlight the collections relating to the early history and the romanization, highlighting Bracara Augusta. Recommend to visit

  • Visit at the travel fair. The room however was tight for the event organized. It seemed a little lack of organization, more of the event of the museum itself.

  • It's a very interesting place to learn about the ancient history of Bracara Augusta, the modern city of Braga. Emphasis on the preserved remains of the foundations of a typical Roman House.
