The basics

A popular attraction suited to kids and adults alike, the Madeira Story Centre aims to present the archipelago’s history in an accessible and interactive format that stimulates all five senses. Divided into eight sections—The Volcanic Origins, Legends of Discovery, Discovery of Madeira, Turmoil and Trade, Strategic Island, Madeira Development, After Navigation, and Exploring Madeira—the museum’s exhibition areas feature multimedia displays, costumed mannequins, rare artifacts, digital installations, and even thematic gardens, which introduce visitors to some of the archipelago’s native plant species.

The Madeira Story Centre is located in Funchal’s Old Town (Zona Velha) and is easily explored independently. With its friendly exhibitions and accessible size, the landmark can be paired with other nearby highlights as part of a cultural day out in the city.
