A quaint little museum showing life in Faro over the years, you wont find any VR headsets and flashing displays just old fashioned mannequins and equipment from back in the day and in the surroundings it fits perfectly.

I've no idea how much it cost as the person on the entry had no change so just let us in.

A nice quiet way to spend an hour or so.

This museum gives an excellent insight into the everyday life of past local communities. Exhibits are very well displayed, but some information is only in Portuguese.
Although small, we spent quite a long time here.

We wiled away the better part of an hour looking at all the lovely exhibits and photos. Really felt as though we were getting a glimpse into old Algarve and the lives of its people. Recommended

Located in the old part of the new town and so close to the Old Town, this museum concentrating on past metiers of the Algarve region, including the importance of water, should not be missed. There are reconstructed furnished rooms of houses too.

We visited the Museum on our last day in Faro and found it very good and it certainly filled a good few hours in addition to being very interesting.

Interesting museum, well worth a visit. Located near to the Cathedral in the old town. Have a look at the Faz Gostas restaurant, also nearby.

It is a very small museum, but it was very good, lovely old photos, some room settings. Very reasonable admission price, less than 2 euro. Does not take that long to do, but worth it.
