We went out of our way to visit this popular museum and it is currently a building site with lots of rubble in the area.

We go here every time we come to Funchal. For the past few visits it has looked derelict but at least this time there are signs that it is being refurbished which is great as it was an excellent museum of photography. Hopefully it will...More

This place is currently closed and abandoned, as well as many other historic homes in Funchal. There is no notification of the reason for the closure. The courtyard is overgrown with weeds, you can only look through the bars. It is a real pity.

Ideal for a dull or wet day, situated near the main post office, many photos of Madeira over the ages of photography, very interesting to see the old way of life

This museum has been closed for refurbishment for over a year, however nothing much seems to be happy. BUT some copies of the photos can presently be seen at the "Quinta das Cruzes" museum. Or there are books available in souvenir shops and bookshops.

Walked past it yesterday. Closed and in a dilapidated condition. No further information,I'm afraid. Not easy to say much else,therefore,except that it's located on a pleasant street in a picturesque area,with many cafes and restaurants all around.

This place was so disappointing. So many interesting things on display with the potential to be so much more interesting. The only labelling on the exhibits was to tell you when each item was purchased. What's the point in that? We would have liked to...More
