  • Updated and modernized sardine factory turned into a museum. Very well done, and it has received many awards. My only complaint would be the lack of English translation. Pictures and artifacts are gre...  more »
  • The museum is definitely worth it, (3 euro entrance) information movie is very interesting and as a result, you see the recognition with the equipment that we used before. Nicely decorated we were this really impressed. What are, however, very much against fell ..... is that all the explanations in Portuguese. Brochure with explanations only in Portuguese! When asked ... not in stock! Thereby our rating as average, surely the English language is a must!!! Is a tourist town so certainly in play here.

  • With gales hitting the area we visited the museum in an airy building. No English translation in most places but good video with subtitles. You can see the room where the sardines were dealt with. Bes...  more »

  • Great modern museum with some beautiful objects and items and a fair entrance fee. We really liked the decoration of the fabric hall and the real size statues of the workers. On of the things we did not like is that the tour is only in portugese. No extra booklet with translation was available. The movie of factory history has subtitles though. Some room for improvement!
  • Great, informative museum. Cheap to get in (around euros). Great program to escape the heat or the rain. Not all text is available in English, French, or German, but the movie is worth to watch. You are not supposed to touch the items, but this is not communicated, unless you do and you are told off. These are the only downsides.
  • Great museum of archeology from the area. The major part of the museum is given over to the history of sardine fishing and processing in the area, which is much more interesting than you'd think! Nice area on the quay and there's Storks nesting all around.
  • A fascinating insight into a working sardine canning factory... Highly recommend a visit a must see in Portimao
  • Free on Saturdays until 2:00pm. Its about 30 to 45 minutes visit.
