  • A exposição de referência do museu oferece um percurso pela história da ocupação humana no concelho de Portimão, desde a pré-historia à contemporaneidade, expondo achados, materiais interpretativos e atmosferas recriadas. Destaque para a indústria conserveira - o edifício pertencia a uma das fabricas mais importantes da cidade - que conta com a antiga maquinaria e os principais processos de produção recriados, mas também para a arqueologia subaquática, que tem contribuído bastante para o espolio do museu. Vale a visita.
