  • We did not visit the Museum and the collections but we visited the gardens which are very pretty.

  • Uninteresting, dark, depressing place. It was listed as one of the landmark of Funchal : well, that makes me worried about the others... Would not even recommend the place to my mother-in)-law ! Once ...  more »
  • House a museum with exhibition of furniture and silverware plus some framework, tool and dress. Each room is described on a sheet (there is in Italian) being a bit annoying. To €3 and if it's not too far away one can see (near the convent of Santa Clara)

  • Very pretty gardens well worth the few euro entrance fee. Museum interesting too but i preferred the amazing gardens and huge trees... Some very noisy frogs too!
  • Small but very good silver collection
  • Free entrance for students. Museum and a small garden to visit.
  • Relax
  • The Museum advertised "Design Art Museum" and this certainly wasn't. It was an old Villa, where was the rooms laid out in favor of old Portuguese and English furniture and other design elements, such as tables and rugs. On the ground floor of a former wine cellar had been collected by a big pile of individual objects in the katalogimaisesti, with no real description or story. The Museum's "the garden" was quite charming, but very dilapidated. Shall not pretend that the place is not taken as the 15-30 minutes, but you may very well save you some other. The staff was also quite reserved, and not been able to tell from no more than a tourist guide to the tagline.

Where to stay in Funchal

Funchal's array of accommodation presents an interesting conundrum, as many of the upscale hotels and budget options lie outside the city center. If you opt to stay there, you'll need transportation in order to best explore the city. Luxury hotels touting outdoor pools, spas, exclusive restaurants, and other amenities certainly dazzle with their locations along the coast.
