Housed in a superb building by Madeiran architect Paulo David and perched atop a hill overlooking Calheta, this holds a fantastic display and collection of Art Deco and Art Deco inspired work. A wonderful building and great content made for a very pleasurable visit. Best gallery / museum on Madeira!

When we visited in May this gallery hosted a wonderful exhibition of an art deco collection by Berardo. Simply stunning and in a great building too.

However, it is not the best signposted building. When you get there it is next to a school, if you reach the school you have gone too far. Parking is an underground park with the entrance to the left of the gallery building as you approach up the hill. Once you are parked there is no signage to guide you to either the cafe or the gallery, just work your way up and out.

Casa das Mudas is an excelent museum to visit. You must see the the Berardo Colletion with objectos of art déco. The architecture of the building is complety different and the place has a wonderful view over Calheta, and the ocean.

TheCasa dasMudas Arts Centre provides a marvellous day out . The architecture of the building is striking against the cliffs and the sea and it's design allows a wonderful space in which to house collections of art and objects. Take your camera ,as every turn you make affords a super opportunity for photography and you are allowed to take photographs inside the building. We went by taxi along the coast road from Funchal and really enjoyed the journey and our visit to the Casa das Mudas. Do go!
