of a small, local museum. A little bit of everything historic and cultural, many of the displays were donated by local residents. The collection is well organized with good lighting. Worth the stop.

Marvão is a small village with a rich history. This museum, located in a former church, has three collections: Archeological, religious (mostly statues of saints) and etnographic. Especially the archeological has a good context. It doesn't cost a lot, so it's well worth the visit.

This is a small museum which has displays dating to prehistory and up to the medieval period. It is worth a visit as it is very close to the castle.

This little museum (updated in May) is just before the castle entrance. At €1.30 each it is worth a visit. It has displays of the different eras and helps you understand what has gone before.
