We visited the Museum on our last day in Faro and found it very good and it certainly filled a good few hours in addition to being very interesting.

Interesting museum, well worth a visit. Located near to the Cathedral in the old town. Have a look at the Faz Gostas restaurant, also nearby.

It is a very small museum, but it was very good, lovely old photos, some room settings. Very reasonable admission price, less than 2 euro. Does not take that long to do, but worth it.
