The hat Museum was born in 2005 from an ancient hat factory. Unique in the Iberian Peninsula, the museum is a tribute to all men and women that made this industry one of the most important activities in the history of S. João da Madeira. In this space there are preserved pictures and artifacts that illustrate the hat production methods and also the human, social and cultural dimension of the community for which this activity has assumed an important role.

    Visit the long duration exhibitions, get to know the life of this industry’s workers and go back in time to an age when nobody would leave their house without a hat.
