  • Great and interesting museum on the front. Exellant history of the sardine canning industry which was a social comment of its time . You can get a double ticket to include the Neolithic tombs some 10k...  more »
  • We ran into here one rainy day whilst we had family visiting us. We had never been before and were pleasantly surprised to find this little gem. It was a wonderful informative museum showing Portimao ...  more »
  • A must, because the whole history of the Algarve is conveyed (a small shortcoming, in Portuguese and English only). But if you explore the interesting surroundings, one is familiar with the history. In each turistoffice gibts the 8 historical events on a flyer described motor vehicle provided. To buy cheap tickets gibts also for several museums and attractions (portimao about 65 years Museum € 1.50!, otherwise€ 3.--). Maybe the info soon also in German and French will be signposted.

  • 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.
