Madeira's museums are excellent places to get to know in detail the historic journey of this archipelago of volcanic origin, as well as some of its age-old traditions. But that's not all. Since the offer is quite vast, there are options suitable for all interests and all ages.
The range of options available on the two islands allows visitors to enjoy, for example, an in-depth contact with the Madeiran identity. Some of Madeira's museums offer a journey to the roots that sustain the unique culture of this archipelago.
