Hat Museum and Old City Hall (Paços da Cultura)

The city's Hat Museum, the only one of its kind in all Iberian Peninsula, is located in an historical hat factory called “Empresa Industrial da Chapelaria”. Inside the Museum, the exhibition includes machinery, tools, raw materials, hats and testimonials by old workers.

All of this is presented in a dynamic building, always in motion.

Visitors have the possibility to see, touch, smell and feel the raw materials. They can also watch workers shaping hats that are sold in the Museum shop.
