Best part of the museum is the walk along the outer walls overlooking part of Loule. There is not a tremendous amount to see inside. Free to Seniors 65+,,, be sure to ask for discount if eligible.

Small museum with artwork and ancient pottery. My favourite parts were the Roman mosaic and the building itself which used to be a convent. It's beautiful.

Faro is a great town to wander through and Museu Municipal de Faro is a very special part of the town. Lots of culture and history. It is a place I am sure Portugal can pride itself with. We had a very memorable day here.

Building maintained, but original charm gone. Paintings and archeological remnants are not impressive if you have ever visited a larger museum. Wish they restored the place to reflect its history.

It's a museum; so don't go if you don't like them. If you do, it's a great and vey interesting place to visit, presenting the history and culture of Faro and its surroundings very well.
