Located in the old council prison, built in the 1930's, this museum has two main exhibition centres: the ethnographic centre, which shows the habits and customs of the region, and the archaeological centre, with a series of findings that range from prehistoric time to our days.
Be sure to visit the permanent exhibition dedicated to Edgar Cardoso (1913-2000), the distinguished bridge engineer who created emotional bonds with Resende and the river Douro. Among his best known works are the bridges of Arrábida and São João, between Porto and Gaia, and the bridge of Mosteirô, between Baião and Cinfães.
