Carlos Machado Museum
Azores, Sao Miguel

The Carlos Machado Museum, located not far from the Public Library, was founded in 1880, and since 1930 has been moved to the Convento de Santo André (convent), which has existed since the 16th century. This museum is considered one of the most famous in the Azores. Initially, he began his work by presenting collections in natural sciences (especially zoology), botany, geology and mineralogy. Later, the importance of the museum increased due to the appearance of art and ethnography exhibits in it. When the museum was moved to the nunnery, the collections were significantly expanded, here you could already see unique jewelry, porcelain, toys, paintings and sculptures. Particularly noteworthy are the paintings of the Portuguese school of the 16th century and the collection of modern art. A visit to the museum will tell you about the local culture and the stages of its development.
