Vintage plate 2018

Installed in the town's old fish market, this museum retraces the history of millions of Azorean emigrants, now more numerous abroad than on the archipelago! Very rich in archives and period objects, this museum is fascinating. You will discover for example that the Hawaiian ukulele actually comes from the Azores archipelago. Temporary exhibitions and various events are organized throughout the year. A visit not to be missed!

250.000 habitants répartis sur les 9 îles et 2 millions d'açoriens "hors frontières", voilà qui pose question. Ce charmant musée et sa charmante conservatrice sont là pour vous répondre. La visite se fait un peu dans le désordre, mais il touche au coeur et laisse entrevoir la vie difficile qui a poussé les gens à s'expatrier. A ne pas manquer et à visiter en début de séjour pour mieux éclairer la suite du séjour. La vieille ville est jolie et une balade le long de la côte débute à 50m du musée. 2,00€ et 1,00€ si 65+

Petit musée très riche en informations sur les mouvements de populations aux Açores. Vous y découvrirez qu'un groupe d'açoriens est parti au XIXème siècle pour Hawaï avec un petit instrument à 4 cordes typique des Açores, que les Hawaïens ont adopté sous le nom de Ukulele.
