I spent an enjoyable morning here. The house has many interesting pieces housed in large airy rooms. The photographs of old Madeira were particularly interesting as were some of the paintings and furniture. The gardens are beautiful with nice places to sit and great views of the surrounding area and the seafront.

Just loved this old Quinta where Zarco spent the last years of his life. The ambience of the rooms is perfect. No clutter. Particularly liked the black and white photographs of old Madeira and the paintings that all help one understand how the country has prospered and a great glimpse into the past. The furniture in room 12 is of... More

We visited on foot as the museum was near our hotel. Such an enjoyable trip through the house, including a visiting art exhibition and live mandolin music Collections of paintings, fine ceramics and furniture, many British or imitating British styles of 18th and 19th centuries. The silver collections in the basement is the standout, however, so do not miss it.... More

Having visited before we wanted to see this place again and were very glad we did. There are many rooms with art and furniture from different periods all very well displayed. We had the good fortune to have a talented guitar / mandolin player playing when we were there, so cross your fingers for the same. The silver work exhibit... More

Wonderful collection housed in this museum. The silver ware in particular was just incredible. Some of the furniture, painting and ceramics were also quite fantastic. The garden which surrounds the museum building is an attraction in itself. In fact it was the garden that attracted us in the first place then we realised the building was a museum. Very much...

Our arrival was not the most welcoming and we got the impression that we were being followed in case we touched anything. There is a lot to see. The problem is that not all of the rooms had English translations available and indeed some of the labelling was only in Portuguese. A lot was to be commended, interesting furniture and... More

Save your entrance fee to the museum. We were looking forward to seeing a real quinta from long ago but what we got were some fusty rooms laid out in a real uninteresting way. Some reviews say its like a National Trust house; its like NT used to offer 20 years ago. Shame it should be so much more interesting.... More
