  • Let me start by saying that I am not a smoker, but I found very interesting the visit to this small museum, unfortunately little noticed. This is a tobacco processing factory (cigarettes) and turned into a Museum: a small field where they are cultivated tobacco plants, the stone buildings where it was dried, the spaces and turn it into cigarettes. The visit to the factory/Museum was made interesting by the young guide who accompanied us and explained everything with a lot of passion. I would definitely recommend it to anyone interested in learning about this aspect of the cultural history of the Azores.

  • Nice museum and good explanation was provided concerning the way in which tobacco was treated here. It is a museum, no plantation more. They do have a minimum order to the people. Very nice reception! Thanks!

  • Silvia, our guide showed us the complete operation and the machines, as well as the storage - very interesting. It's a pity that this tobacco only on the islands of the archipelago is to have. Admission is outrageously cheap and the future of the Museum is not secured, so look at as long as it is still open!
