Free Entry to Natural History Museum


Natural History Museum

There's currently free entry to Funchal's Natural History Museum - at Rua da Mouraria, 31- owing to significant redevelopment work.

Unfortunately, this means that the aquarium - probably the most popular feature - is closed. However, the garden of aromatic plants is open as are the galleries of the permanent collection, though these largely consist of examples of the local fauna, stuffed and mounted in glass cases, which may not be to everyone's taste.
