Embroidery is one of Madeira's historic crafts so after visiting a factory and a shop where the staff were very knowledgeable and helpful we set off up the hill to the museum. At the top of the stairs we came to the reception desk where we paid our 2 euros entrance.

The museum displays are set out in three large rooms and includes lots of embroidered items as well as furniture and other period items displayed in room settings. There are some very interesting objects with old photos and lots of explanations. This is not an interactive museum but we found it very informative.

Unfortunately they do not allow photography and as far as we could see there was no shop from which to buy anything so we have nothing to remember our visit by other than our own memories. They are missing a trick here!

You only need a couple of hours at the most here but they close for lunch so keep an eye on the opening times.
