Museu Arqueologico, Faro Reviews

  • I wanted to visit it while asking for the price together with my bike. But the receptionist working on the 7th of August 2018 was just insisting to get out my bike without offering any solution where to store it. This was a really weak customer service. It seemed that the employee was missusing her position in order to profit personally with the feeling of power. @Administration and receptionist of the museum: Please take this feedback as input while considering how to decrease the massive unemployment rate in Portugal. Such behaviour throws us back to the Medieval Times!

  • 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.

  • Very cheap and very cool. Beautiful museum that’s well worth the experience. Definitely would recommend.

  • Wonderful, just wonderful. Great and beautiful little place. Really nice garden in the middle. Exposition is great. You can learn. About Faro history. Exibitions are devided to permanent and temporary. During our visit, there was paintings of Algrave legends. Defenetly worth to see when in Faro. Prize for tickets was bout 2 euros
