Madeira is of volcanic origin and this is illustrated in this museum.
At first you will be guided in small groups through the caves and you will get some interesting information about the history of Madeira’s origins. The caves are impressive, but you should try to get close to the guide. If you stand further back in a large group, you will unfortunately hardly understand anything. The guided tours are in Portuguese and English.
After the 45-minute tour there is an exhibition in the Volcano Museum, which is not very good. It’s also a pity that the 3D film is very outdated and maybe only interesting for children.
Costs: 8 EUR
