Attraction details
Reviewed April 23, 2013

This elegant house is beautifully laid out and not over full of 'stuff', so you can really feel what it was like to live there. There is helpful information on cards. Alongside the house, there is an interesting display of tiles and tile making, and another wing has displays of Madeiran artists' work. The museum is located very close to the Convent of Santa Clara, and is an easy walk (admittedly uphill) from the centre of Funchal.

We visited this museum for a second time this year as there was so much to see we just couldn't cope with any more on our visit last year. He collected so much of everything in which he was interested that our brains were full by the time we had seen the house last time so the tile exhibit was a bt too much. We did it in reverse this year and sat in the roof top garden as well. Good value, 3 euro for the two of us, seniors!

We visited the tile museum which was, to be honest, boring but the house, included in the ticket price was brilliant. Such a fantastic building filled with a collection of English and Portuguese furniture and treasures. Guides in each room but we were given an English translation to take from room to room. The place has a lovely calm feel. Don't miss the garden with its summer house overlooking the busy street. Well worth a visit

A collection of artifacts in the English style in the midde of a Portuguese city. Quite unexpected and well worth a visit. a relatively small building but lots to see and well itemised.

A private house and collection left to the Town in the 1970's. well worth visiting to see the objects, plus a modern addition exhibiting a collection of tiles.
