Graciosa Museum

Museu da Graciosa

Housed in a former cereal and wine warehouse, this museum recreates ethnographical and cultural characteristics of Graciosa. Apart from reproducing a typical island house with all its elements, the museum has also a wine cellar (press rooms), agricultural utensils and several instruments related to traditional crafts, such as cooperage, cabinet work and pottery. In the garden attached to the building, you will find a cannon exhibit, presenting the cannons used in the several island fortresses, but most of them have already vanished. The main museum has two other museum centres: one of them depicting whale hunting activity, housed in an ancient hut of whale hunting canoes, and another one set in a typical island mill, located in Fontes.
