This was a very informative and interesting museum which covers the history of the site and some martini history of Porto. Includes roman mosaics and parts of the building left exposed from the 1700's. Excellent value at €2.20 each.

This is indeed a hidden gem of a museum. Not a large museum,but modern & excellent displays. Main focus is on the history of minting coins & it includes a lot of Porto history too. Best of all it is free. Highly recommend!
