Since it’s free, it’s worth looking in to see the small collection of mostly Roman remains found locally. They’re well displayed and although there are no translations into any other language, you can work out what the exhibits are. The dates are in Roman numerals so can also be understood.

This is a very small museum which is not well advertised. We quietly tiptoed in as we thought that no one was about. Everything was written in Portuguese but you could work out the 'gist' of the exhibits. There is an upstairs where we bumped into a lady painting a canvas. It was very intriguing and only lasted a few minutes.

Not much better than the last time that I popped in here to have a look around, the person behind the desk did not seem interested, still no explanation of the exhibits in English but saying that upstairs was a exhibition of "cubism" which was in English.

Museu Municipal de Olhao has a small collection of mainly Roman artifacts together with maps and information about the history of the area; unfortunately all in Portuguese. Also has an art exhibition. Free entrance.

My title may sound like a little Brit on holiday but in all honesty it is a very good and interesting small museum which could be made accessible to many visitors by the inclusion of English or other languages in the descriptions. Fortunately my wife understands some Latin and we worked our way through the exhibits on a cryptic crossword kind of basis. It would have been easier and told the stories in a much fuller way if a translation had been available. It's free by the way.
