“Lovely tea house”

Universo de Memorias Joao Carlos Abreu
Ranked #4 of 113 things to do in Funchal
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 12 June 2018 via mobile

The museum is still shut due to the water ingress - the young lady in the cafe said it might not open again until September. However the Tea House is excellent - the sugar cane cakes were exceptionally good. It is opposite the Convent of Santa Clara, which doesn’t have a cafe, and the Quinta which is also open to the public, and recommended if you are in the area.

We have been to Madeira many times but we only discovered this museum last year, since then we have many times and once we've looked around, we enjoy a coffee and a scone in the little tea shop. All the staff are lovely and you have a guide to take you around the museum, which is just a big house with rooms full of different artefacts. The Tie Room is spectacular and no I don't mean Thai Room

Definitely worth a visit if nothing else for a coffee. Host very communicative. Museum temp closed due to recent water ingress but hopes to be re-opened June.

We visited this museum today and found it closed, although the outside cafe was open. A couple of charming ladies told us that they had suffered a flood within the house and it is closed until further notice. It would be a good idea to phone ahead before committing yourself to a steep walk to get there.

The Teahouse is in the garden of the Universo de Memorias and is ideal for those visiting this amazing place or the Quinta das Cruzes Museum or gardens across the street.
