“Worth a look - persist in getting in!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2013

This doesn't appear to be open all the time despite the shiny new sign on the door. We had to go to the Municipal museum down the road and the lady there had to lock that museum and then come with us to open this one. That information isn't on the board in English or Portuguese. I can speak portuguese and I didn't understand what you had to do. Not sure that a foreign tourist wouldn't have given up! Perhaps in Summer they have someone there all the time?
There isn't any information about the painter really but it's worth a look just to see inside the house which is beautiful. A tiny place stuffed with things. But good to see inside what these tiny places are like. His paintings are lovely and it has made me want to find out more about him.
your 2€ ticket will also get you into the Sao Antonio museum (and the Museu de Arte Sacra too I think). Both will take about 20 mins to look at
