I visited at 14:30 on Saturday 27th June 2020 and the museum was closed. I presume due to the Covid-19 restrictions. A pity as from what I had read and pictures I had seen on different webpages, the museum seems to be very interesting. Hence my 4 stars. There was nothing on the door stating when the museum will reopen.

This is a small and very interesting museum! Located at the old "Convento de Nossa Senhora da Assunção" ("Convent of Our Lady of Assumption", in English), the "Museu Municipal do Faro" displays collections concerning the Roman times in "Ossonoba" (as the city of Faro was named by them in the 1st century), the Moorish years in "Santa María" (as Faro was known from the 10th to the 13th centuries) and fine classical paintings from the 16th to the 19th centuries. The highlights are the Roman mosaics portraying "Oceanus", their patron god for seas and oceans. Two last hints: 1) on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, "Fado" singers and players perform live in this lovely museum at 11:30 AM, 2:30 PM, 4:00 PM and 5:00 PM. Check the schedule before going; and 2) check also their temporary exhibitions, always bringing important artists to Faro's cultural scene. Unmissable! Enjoy!

Very interesting artefacts and amazing paintings but what made it for me was the fado - the singer was amazing. Cost €2 for the museum or €8.50 including fado. Be aware it is closed on Mondays

The mission of the Museum is to investigate, preserve, document, value, disseminate, acquire and disseminate the material and immaterial testimonies of man in the area of,​the municipality of Faro, from a regional perspective. It was not open on the moment of our visit, but it seems to be worth a visit.

The day we went there was no admission fee. There's a lot of history inside. It wasn't crowded, so one could wander leisurely around the building.
