“Well worth visiting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

A very good introduction to Madeira - go early in your first visit to the island to get the most benefit. If you have the misfortune to have a wet day this is definitely one of the places to shelter situated just behind the cable car station in the centre of the old town.

“Excellent information”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

I suggest a visit here as it is full of information about Madeira.
This provides all the history about the place and is very interesting.

“expensive for what it is”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

We had high hopes of this actraction but we were disappointment. It was very expensive for what it was and a better history of the island could be found in the theme park further along the coast. I would give this a miss to be honest.

“Average, rather over hyped and small.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

Um. Was expecting something a bit better judging by all the ads/hype. 1st flr consisted of ticket lobby, pictures of a volcano and the lifts. 3rd flr is the roof. Full stop. 2nd flr consists of the several exhibits/photos/wax works. Took us an hour exactly to do the whole building. Probably not really worth it, which is a shame.
