  • Interesting museum to visit in Faro, it doesn’t offer much the most interesting thing to see is The Roman Ocean God Mosaic

  • Tiny but nice, had an unexpected range of archaeology displays of the area of Loulé

  • Calm, shaded spot with well exhibited items from history. Beautiful old building.

  • This is a small but enjoyable museum. We started our visit with live (traditional) Fado music performed by 2 guitarists and a singer. Lovely, at an additional fee.

  • The building looks great from within, entrance fee is nearly nothing, and the collection is small and diverse, but quite interesting.
