Museu Carlos Machado

This museum tells and depicts the story of farming communities and fishing locations throughout the centuries.

It was installed in the old Mosteiro de Santo André and its numerous exhibits include some extraordinary paintings by local artist, Domingos Rebelo (1891-1975).

There is also a section devoted to natural history, with an impressive scale model of the island.

The Museum is characterized by being the oldest museum of the archipelago, and is the result of the development of the old Azorean Museum, founded in 1876 by the teacher and naturalist Carlos Maria Gomes Machado .
