Museu Municipal

Museum in São Filipe

Pop into this airy colonial mansion with two floors of exhibits, showcasing old photographs, traditional music instruments, sewing machines and sundry items. You can watch the 28-minute film about the 1995 volcano eruption (no subtitles), the most recent eruption prior to the 2014 blast. It's also worth having a peak at the funco, a traditional circular abode made of volcanic rock, in the leafy courtyard.
