Madeira History Museum
Going up the Street of the Visconde and for the street of S.º Francisco you'll find the old House and chapel of S.º Jose. The building of the current Museum was housing of Captain Luis Goncalves Da Silva. Years later the old house was converted into an industrial unit, with a device to grind sugar canes (some of these elements still are visible in the interior of the museum). The device suffered diverse improvements in the decade of 60. In the year of 1983, the Regional Government decided to install the Madeira History Museum in this place. Today already restaured it holds temporary and permanent expositions with subjects related with Madeira culture.
