Museum of Natural History (Municipal Museum of Funchal) Tours

Rare fish and examples of unique Madeira plant life are on display at this historic museum located in the former residence of the Count of Carvalhal. Since about 1850, botanists and biologists have collected species and artifacts that demonstrate the diversity of Madeira’s fauna, flora and mineral reserves. While visitors say the tired taxidermy displays look far past their prime, collections of marine species, geological rock samples and a slightly more-modern aquarium promote the museum’s message of environmental protection and preservation.
