A potted history of Portugal's past, avoiding much of their colonial period, but dwelling on the health giving properties of the Mediterranean diet. It kept us out of the rain.

The museum was presenting an exhibition of contemporary art, which was a nice surprise, as we were expecting to find some ancient archaeological treasures. It was very interesting and well presented.

A good museum which explains the history of the Algarve for local people, presentations are accompanied by English explanation boards. Well worth a visit.

Thought this was the worst museum we ever visited and we have visited a lot!! Mostly about the med diet and a few maps on the wall. Maybe we missed something but honestly you could give this a miss - there's more history on the streets!

After visiting the Islamic Museum, we expecting an interesting local museum telling us the other parts of the Tavira story through the ages. Perhaps we missed it, but the top floors of the building were taken up with some rather dull, uninspired art installations, and there was an exhibition about Mediterranean food, ok but nothing new to learn. Couldn't find anything at all about Tavira, if it was there we must have missed it.
