“Museum Quinta dos Cruzes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2012

We went here on a cold and wet day - and were very pleasantly surprised. The gardens are interesting as is the house has some very beautiful furniture. And we found the fort at the top of the hill as a bonus!! Tip - try the little tea house across the road from the museum - it looked lovely.

“A worthwhile experience.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2012

We visited this Museum & Gardens on a Sunday afternoon in January,when the attractive looking Cafe in the gardens was not open & nor were the first floor rooms in the Museum.
Nevertheless we spent an hour in the ground floor exhibition area which covered some very fine 16th & 17th Century Cabinets in beautiful condition,together with some unique Gold & Silver Art Treasures. There were also examples of some early forms of Transport from the island,including 2 Sadan Chairs[which we associate with Bath].
The gardens contain some stonework & archeological remains going back to the 15th century. They also contain a good example of a Dragon Tree.
Visit this attraction during the week & the complete museum & cafe should be open.

“Beautiful Garden and Beautiful House - Cafe?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2011

An oasis of calm. The gardens are great. The plant nrusery is wonderful. The house is opulent in the extreme.

The newly built Cafe never seems to be open!!!!
