don't forget to start or end your visit at the really nice cafeteria with a daily menu of simple dishes from northern portugal. very affordable and a comfortable place for a break. lady at the entrance reception said 80% of visitors (presumably locals) come just for the lunches!

The museum is spacious and modern, people who work there are very friendly and if you go on a Sunday morning it's even free. I'm not an archeology enthusiast myself so I cannot say anything about that but even I had some things there that caught my eye for longer than I thought would be possible.

It's just a short walk from the center so I'd recommend looking around the area also.

Clean, spacious and modern museum, interactive, lots of information, great reconstructions of several Roman buildings that once stood in Braga. Good museum shop, don't forget to go outside and visit the basement with the Roman mosaic.

After a visit to this museum (not in the centre of the city unfortunately, but near the remains of the Roman bathhouse!...) you will certainly be inspired to go to the tourist information to get the map with all the Roman features of the city.

After many years of delay the Braga Museum of Archeology finally opened 4 years ago. That is why it may not show up in some guidebooks.

It is by no means a big or first rate museum. This is not the British Museum. Still Braga was once the capital of the northern roman province of Gaelicia, an important commercial city and was well connected by 5 roman roads that are still used to this day. Getting to know this roman past is part of understanding and enjoying Braga. If you have a longer stay in town or just love history like myself I do recommend this museum.

1) Do request to see the introductory video (in Portuguese but you can figure out they are talking about finding and fixing archeological discoveries). Also in the patio of the museum is the entrance to a Roman house discovered when they built the museum foundations.

2) Sundays entrance is free until 2 pm. Otherwise its something like 2-3 Euro entrance.

3) Nearby is a roman thermal bath with a video explanation also worth visiting.

4) Around town they are roman houses, walls and a fountain idol to be visited. All part of the urban landscape. Beneath the train station you can find a pre-roman steam bath !
