Terrible, boring, wasted time. Pathetic exhibits. It is far better to find out about the history of the island on the Internet and to explore the island by car by organizing it. Any point on the island is much more interesting than this park. There...More

Very boring. There were two playgrounds, but we've seen better free ones here. There was a tiny pool for rowing around, but they didn't allow kids unattended, and adults would look ridiculous. There was a train going around the park, but don't suppose it's a...More

The words 'Theme Park' invariably conjure up images of cartoon characters and hair raising roller coaster rides. That is not the case here. The park is spacious and well laid out and very calm! The theme is Madeira Island, its nature, culture and history. That...More

There is so much to see at Madeira that stopping here even for 10 minutes shall be considered a total waste of time. All the city of Santana with its so called "traditional roots" is one big misery. Compared to other open-air museums (or thematic...More

Nice spot for spending 2-3 hours. About 20 things to visit spanning handicrafts, nature, science. Playgrounds and boats. Not really for very small children.
