    This large modern museum is dedicated to the whaling industry of Madeira and for ongoing scientific research of whales..Entry is 10 Euro or 8.50 for seniors.Audio guide in your language included in the price and a cafe on site.Some of the information went over our heads, but a different experience and overall we enjoyed our stay of about 90 minutes.

    Only spent 40 minutes here as part of day trip visiting East of Madeira. Rum tasting was ok. Really strong stuff. But had poncho for those who didn't want their rum neat and juice for the kids.

    A beautiful building with so much potential for exhibits. Just an array of posters and a gift shop. Very disappointing and not worth the effort. Took us 10 minutes to see it all.

    This small Museum and it's exhibits are in a delightful house within the Botanical Gardens in Funchal.

    We wandered through the rooms were packed with display cabinets which were full of stuffed birds, animals, fish, marine life and more.

    There were other cabinets was jars with bits and pieces suspended in fluids.

    Large free standing exhibits of aquatic life were also on display.

    To be honest found the house itself more interesting than the exhibits. We walked from room to room, on the ground floor, in this old house admiring the large fireplaces and ornate plaster work on the ceilings.

    It was an opportunity to get out of the baking heat and sunshine, for a short while

    Admission was free, included in entrance fee to the Gardens.
