Vividly recommended activity. The history of Portugal told by different sorts of bread. The museu is not large and can be visited on one or two hours, depending upon how long you like to read the signs. The final part of the visit is really...nice, even though it was thought for children. The restaurant is also very good! Diverse food and a huge buffet. And the view is incredible!More

The museum was really fun to visit, it was all actually really interesting, much better than I had anticipated.

Only had coffee at the balcony of the beautiful bar of the museum. Definitely worth it paying a little more for a cup of coffee and enjoy the spectacular views.

A surprising dinner find in Seia with so many eateries closed due to Cvd-19. The set pris fixed menu @€20 comprised of a well presented buffet for starters that could have been quite adequate for dinner. Typically Portuguese, typically bland and uninteresting and lacking in...fresh raw salads and vegetables. The main course was, in fact, two consecutive dishes, a lamb dish and a cod dish. Both tasteful but unimaginative. The dessert like starters was an extensive buffet - of flans puddings pastries and other highly sugared unhealthy confections. There was a fresh fruit salad at least. The house white wine was excellent. All in all a good value upmarket evening dinner in a very attractive and pleasant setting. A great venue in Seia for an evening drink too. Sadly typically Portuguese, lacking in flavour, imagination and nutrition. I get the impression that Portuguese chefs have not experienced south east Asia, North America, Central America, Japan, and most of the world’s cuisines. Or is it that they are catering to the equally unsophisticated palates of their Portuguese clientele?More

This Bread Museum is far more interesting than it might sound. We had a buffet meal first in the spacious restuarant beneath the museum. Everyone in our group really enjoyed the range of food. I cannot think of many museums around the world that provide...food like that, most have fast food at best, this was a real restuarant experience. The museum itself was interesting - though there is only so much you can say and show about making bread - the cultural and historical side of bread making in Portugal was quite fascinating. There is a rather strange exhibition of gnome-like puppets to be seen in another part of the building and a shop where you can buy bread and some other foods. Well worth a visit if you are in the area.More

The small museum is interesting but everything is pretty much based on text. I have been to small museums like this that make it much more interesting by adding interaction, like touching the grain, the flour, seeing actual bread being made, cooked, having the chance...to try different types, etc. Not here, unfortunately. The shop is like a passage in time to the old days, with a lot of local products (cheeses and cold meats) and different types of breads. You can try some of the bread, but they are just regular bread, not very special. Still, it was interesting, especially for a Portuguese interested in history. Everything is sparkly clean and the staff is very friendly. We didn't visit the restaurant, so we don't know whether it is good or not.More

This is a very original and well kept museum that tells the history of bread from its inception. How wheat was grown and bread-making process, baking tools, very interesting.

It was easy to get to this Museum, in the outskirts of Seia, at Serra da Estrela mountains, and also to park in one of the parking sites. The restaurant was full and there was a 35 minutes waiting time to get a table. Finally...we didn't had lunch this time, even if the reviews are very good. We visited the museum that it's quite interesting and the nice shop at the entrance with a huge amount of gifts possibilities, from different kinds of bread, handicraft, and many other treats...More
