  • Simple Museum and very well realized in the old fire canneries. A short video slot-Kritika detailed the process of canned sardines. We see reconstructs a workshop and we can go down to the basement in the cistern which collected rain water, the work of the oilrigs sardine plenty of water. See also a wall dedicated has Manuel Teixeira Gomes, native of the region and who became President of the Republic. Go by the pier, not by the street.

  • This museum contains an exposition showing the different types of local residents in different epochs. Some look very natural. Entrance-just three euros.

  • If you enjoy museums you mustn't miss this. It focuses on the fishing industry and it past in Portimao. Enjoyed it!
  • Great to hear and see on film the history of the sardine industry. Archive films are terrific . You get a real feel of how it must have been. Free entry on Saturdays !!!!
  • This is a Fantastic Must See Museum, I have been a few times, they even have a mini cinema where you can watch a film about the history of the Portuguese fishing sardine industry, each time I go I listen to the film in a different language to make it more interesting.
  • Very good place to learn about the history of the algarve
  • Good to learn something about the history of fishing and sardines in this area.
