Owner description: The D. Diogo de Sousa Museum of Archaeology works on the support of archaeological research, conservation and promotion of regional archaeological sites and artefacts through display and educational activities. The museum is open to the public since June 2007 in a fantastic new building with roman ruins preserved ‘in situ’.The permanent exhibition starts in the corridor at the entrance with a brief explanation of the museum’s history followed by the collection from the Palaeolithic to the Early Midle Age. Most part of the exhibition shows how Bracara Augusta (roman town Braga) was integrated into the Roman Empire, the urban development of the city, the organization of public and domestic areas, the roads and the nearby necropolises and the religion in roman and paleo-christian times.

I am tempted to recall the old advertising for the V&A in London: "Ace cafe with quite a good museum attached". The museum is more than quite good (as is the V&A!) and had some particularly good models of Roman life in Portugal. The cafe was clearly a place patronised by locals and who could blame them! For 6.50 euros the lunch was many courses long with tasty hot dishes and wine or other drinks included. If one dessert wasn't enough, there was a baking tray of baked apples (delicious) for seconds.

It's like a cantina in nature but a very decent restaurant to have lunch when you are pressed for time.

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.
