It's quite a specialised museum, dealing with the production and history of port wine, and recording country life in the Douro area. The festivities, the vintage, everyday life.... Surprisingly modern and well-lit, with a lot to enjoy, even for a non-specialist. There's a shop downstairs,...More

Perfect if you're doing the Douro Historical Train (Comboio Historico do Douro) as the connecting Porto-Regua train allows time for this museum + lunch (turn right out of the station). Provides a good background on the port industry, but a bit sparse. Excellent gift shop,...More

A splendid, small museum with information of the port wine history. It is not overwhelming in details or material but just sufficient to provide good insight in history and the important elements of port wine. For port wine rookies, this would be a perfect place...More
