Portugal Martins Sarmento Museum in Guimarães

The Martins Sarmento Museum (Museu Martins Sarmento) contains Celtic and Roman archaeological items found in local Iron Age settlements, including Citânia de Briteiros. This is a very interesting collection and is nicely displayed in a former convent in the center of Guimarães.

Location: Portugal - Minho - Guimarães

Hours: Open Tuesday to Saturday.

Guided Tours of the Exhibits: Our group of three was assigned a Portuguese speaking guide. He spoke some English and our group spoke some Portuguese. There was only one other person in the museum when we were there. The guide was very informative and let us take our time to look at things.

Above the cloister is an enclosed part of the museum with detailed collections of tools, pottery, etc. Photos were not allowed.
