The Madeira Story Center, coolest museum!
From time to time, it’s good to take into consideration our education – namely, our life long education, that thing that makes us want to earn for more knowledge and information and higher understanding and… Haha! Just kidding! The truth is, whenever we travel, we tend to want to learn something from that travel, to give it a bit of a meaning somehow. So we tend to want to combine enjoyment with learning; on the Island of the Eternal Spring, here is what you must see: The Madeira Story Center, coolest museum!
The Madeira Story Center is a relatively new museum located in Funchal, at the heart of the old town. It is conveniently situated, very close to the Funchal Teleferico, another “must see” from which you can get a 360-degree view of the entire archipelago in just 15 minutes.
Back to the museum: this is the greatest place to learn more about the island and its history. This is made in a very interactive and entertaining way. It is a “smart museum” fitted with state of the art multimedia technologies that will make the journey interesting and fascinating for everyone, adults and children alike.
Basically, the display area is arranged in several sections; these are themed exhibitions which are meant to recreate the atmosphere, the air and smell of life in the respective age or context.
Outside, there are thematic gardens to explore as well. The flora of the Madeira Island is luxuriant and spectacular and you will have an amazing time walking these gardens as well.
Towards the exit, there is a great souvenir shop where you can find different local artifacts and handicrafts to buy for your loved ones.
We won’t spoil the surprise for you, but let you discover this beautiful place for yourselves. When it’s time to find your way back home, you can count on Madeira transfers to bring you back.
