If you want the views or the sunset even if the Museum is closed just jump in and enjoy the panorama, if you got time to spend have a bite or something more elaborated and local at the Mudas Restaurant from 10am t0 10pm everyday....More

I'm a fan of contemporary art, but what the MUDAS shows is rather boring and unimaginative work reminiscent of kindergarten drawings. The architecture of the museum is then only partially conciliatory.

Really wonderful architecture, on top of the mountain. Not all but some of the art was great. Must do!

Modern art is not for everyone. You start on the top floor then go down 3 levels (they do have a lift) the shop was shut and photos are not permitted.... however its only 4 euros, good cafe and fantastic view.

Whilst the architect has been awarded for this great design and build of the building itself, the exhibition is lacking. It is a contemporary exhibition of no real quality.

The arts centre contains Portuguese artists work and is very contemporary. It is worth a visit for the building itself and the fantastic views of Calheta.

What looks like a very ugly building perched high above Calheta houses a fascinating exhibition of Contemporary Portuguese Art. The inside of the building belies its ugly exterior and it makes great use of modern wooden flooring. The exhibits are well spread out with plenty...More
