vicentes

Again the leading News blog on Madeira brings you breaking news.

The Madeiran Government has announced that 1.2 million euros will be spent renovating the Museum during 2016 and 2017. Approximately 400 days work. So, we all hope for a reopening in mid 2017.

This is great news as the Museum is the oldest photographic museum of the Iberian Peninsula and has a stock of more than six hundred thousand negatives including the arrival of the first water plane in Madeira, the holiday snaps of Churchill and George Bernard Shaw and the photos of the last few years of the life of the last Emperor of the Austro-Hungarian Empire.
