This villa belonged to a rich cork merchant and is well worth a visit.There is some lovely costumes and a example of a hand embroidered dress also worth a look was the wedding dress and the lovely embroidered stockings bride wore. There is a section on military and in courtyard a array of bygone farm waggons and other forms of transport.It was interesting to see how the rich lived years ago.

We called here on a to be fair. Not a well signed mueseum. However the very small enterence fee is very well worth it. A collection of costumes reflects the history. A lovely courtyard leads to a cafe and 5he toilets. As befit a local mueseum it is also used for local group. Welll worth a visit and not far from the airport.

The museum is very much worth a visit. Thee was an exhibition themed on time and covering changes in the locale since 2012 which added to the core of the museum. Apart from the local history there is a (slightly worn) video in cork making in that section of the museum, an art gallery, a cafe/shop with outside seating in a lovely courtyard, good parking, a range of local historic carts and the old well. The inside is cool and the outside tranquil under the trees. A great place for a quiet hour or more, probably more especially for adults and older children but enough outside space for younger children too

My wife has a keen interest in clothes which was the principal reason for our visit as there was an exhibition of fashion in the late 19th Century to about 1930.
Very well displayed if fairly small, and the information was in English as well as Portuguese which was very helpful.
The second part of the museum is given over to cork which is pretty much ubiquitous in the Algarve.
It's only a small museum but it was a very nice way to spend a leisurely hour or so and it was only a few Euro for entry.

The building itself is stunning and worth seeing in itself. The costumes are interesting and we had fun posing with the moustaches and the cut out costumes. The outside has an extensive display of cork machinery and a tower with views over the town. Only 30 min visit but very well presented and enjoyable.
