Please ignore the raring as we never actually got to see the museum. All info we had seen, including internet, said it was at the fort. However, when we got there, we were told it has recently moved to out of town somewhere. Best to...More

Very lovely fort (reminded us of Torre de Belem in Lisbon) with beautiful views and a little photography gallery inside.

They have changed location, so the museum was not here anymore. They dont say this on tripadvisor nor their website, which is quite strange.

The fort is worth a visit as you get some brilliant views. The exhibition was just a couple of old photographs. Would have been interesting had there been more and a description of what they were of and where they were taken and when.

rarely have I seen such poor exhibitions. The place is nice though. The exhibitions not worth a visit.

The exhibition is interesting but not memorable. The fort, itself, is well worth a visit. It's military architecture is notable and the views in all directions are stunning. Don't miss this one, if you have time to spare in Funchal.

Personally the art collection in this museum is nothing to draw a crowd, but the beautifully restored fort is well worth the time and entrance fee. The views out over the water from the upper level of the fort is magnificent and the bright yellow...More

Quite apart from the art collection… it’s worth a walk through the old town to this beautifully maintained and presented fort just to see the views over the lower town and the harbour. Had we known that there was an excellent restaurant on site… we...More

Not the best fort visited but had my attention long enough to pay the entrance fee and take some photos.
