It is a nice whitewashed building in the heart of the beautiful, historic town of Tavira. However, that is as good as it gets as it is very disappointing inside - expected much more about the town and Portuguese history. Some nice artwork but that is it!!!

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.
