  • Great historical place, taking you back to sardines industrial times, when 23 factories at Portimão used to be prosperous. French spoken. Paid 4.5€ for 2 adults and 4 kids.
  • Wow!!! What a great museum. Visited on a rainy afternoon and were blown away. A real highlight not only for rainy days. Shows the history of the region as well as an insight in the fish can manufacturing (way more interesting than it sounds ;). Entry is only €3!
  • The history of local people and their town. Well done Portimão 👍😎
  • 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 !!!!
