An unexpected museum. Beautiful building, outstanding location. Good historic research, interesting documents and exhibition and a room with puppets which if you have children is very , very nice. Didn't try the restaurant but after seeing it we feel sorry...

Museu do pão is a good place to go with children when you are exploring Serra da Estrela. The expositions are nice and they have an activity with children where they bake a decorative piece of bread. The restaurant has delicious food but somethimes you need to book ahead!
