They put a nice simulation for the bread making story, also at the historic section you can see how the bread makers lost their local status over the years. Recommended for family with kids and also nice for couples. The staff is great and lively!

A place to visit with children! You can learn the history of bread art making and back to old times! In the bar you can enjoy a Portuguese coffee style and view a fantastic landscape! In the end of your visit don't forget to visit the grocery to buy genuine portuguese food and handcraft!

I would have loved to visit this quint little museum but unfortunately the bread museum has moved to where the toy museum was. A helpful local needed to show me the way and unfortunately at 5pm it was closed, even though opening hours displayed stated 6pm closure.

This museum is absolutely surprising. Came here with my wife and baby, just because tripadvisor marked it nearby. What a great great surprise!! If you have at least an hour, do yourself a favor and visit this place. The entry for adults is € 5 but well worth every cent. There are four rooms with so much interesting and curious... More

An unexpected museum. Beautiful building, outstanding location. Good historic research, interesting documents and exhibition and a room with puppets which if you have children is very , very nice. Didn't try the restaurant but after seeing it we feel sorry...

Museu do pão is a good place to go with children when you are exploring Serra da Estrela. The expositions are nice and they have an activity with children where they bake a decorative piece of bread. The restaurant has delicious food but somethimes you need to book ahead!

The museum itself has a nice part for little kids, where they can make their own bread. The adult part is filled with history and explanations related to the region and the bread making process. There is a local products shop where you can buy some amazing cheese, bread, wine and other products. If you visit on Christmas time, the... More

Somehow we came across the Museu do Pao on the internet & added it as a lunch stop on our trip to the Serra da Estrela. The museum is a little work to find but the views are nice from atop the hill overlookng Seia. The restaurant is packed with families on Sunday so we recommend calling ahead. Luckily since... More
