    This museum has a large collection of the works of Henrique and Francisco Franco, including oil paintings, drawings, engravings and small frescos created by Henrique Franco and sculptures, drawings and engravings created by his brother, sculptor Francisco Franco.

    Francisco Franco is considered one of the greatest Portuguese sculptors of the 1920s. He was one of the most sought-after artists for creating official statuary for the Estado Novo regime.

    Henrique Franco received several national awards for his paintings and participated in one of the most emblematic works of Portuguese Modernism, Our Lady of Fatima Church in Lisbon.

    The museum produces medium and long-term exhibits to rotate the collection and also has an educational service geared toward disseminating the works and information about the artists to promote art appreciation and simplify the encounter between visitors and the objects exhibited through guided tours, theme-oriented activities and art workshops.

    banner Funchal, the capital of the Madeira archipelago, was declared a city in the 1500s, and became an important point between the old and new worlds. The laid-back city owes much of its historical prominence to the white gold, the Madeiran sugar. Today Funchal is known for its appealing temperatures, wine and crafts. Top spots to visit include the open Worker's Market, Blandy's Wine Lodge and the Sacred Art Museum. Friendly locals, walkable streets and cheap taxis make the city easy to get around.
