This museum is absolutely surprising. Came here with my wife and baby, just because tripadvisor marked it nearby. What a great great surprise!!

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!

Somehow we came across the Museu do Pao on the internet & added it as a lunch stop on our trip to the Serra da Estrela. The museum is a little work to find but the views are nice from atop the hill overlookng Seia. The restaurant is packed with families on Sunday so we recommend calling ahead. Luckily since... More
