Loved the building, because it is such an atmospheric and unusual place--intact and clearly once a religious institution, it has a pleasant and contemplative air which enhances the exhibits when you get around to looking at them.

It was a nice Sunday afternoon to have a look inside, was free of entry. Not many people, was very relaxing. Bring your own water. We did go at the end of October. Hope this helps.

As per the title, with some very good exhibits. I particularly enjoyed the paintings of Carlos Filipe Porfirio, very atmospheric. Staff very pleasant and tolerant of our (embarrassing!) lack of Portuguese. Faro is a lovely town and this museum is a credit to it.

We were recommended to visit the museum after taking the Free Faro Walking Tour and we were not disappointed. Not a large museum but a great cross section of the history of the Algarve
