Today it is the site of a beautiful photographic collection of Portuguese photographers and temporary exhibitions. Be sure to observe the architecture of the interior. Free admission.

This is a free museum, so not very much to complain about in that respect. But this is a highly 'art' centred museum and some of the exhibits require a great deal of interpretation. This is not really suitable for young children or those wanting lighter entertainment. The layout is restricted by the old use of the building as a prison, but the history of photography seems to take second place to the temporary exhibitions. If you are interested in photography this is worth a visit, if not there may be a better option out there.
Excellent, thought-provoking photography exhibitions in a unique space. One of the best photography museums we have been to and one of the best things to see in Porto. Would 100% recommend a visit!
