Museu de Artes Decorativas (Museum of Decorative Arts) 
Housed in an 18th century mansion -  the Teixeira Barbosa Maciel family coat of arms can be seen on the façade - the Viana do Castelo Municipal Museum dedicated to the decorative arts exhibits a valuable collection of old Portuguese faience pieces from the 17th to the 19th centuries, including a number of examples from the famous Viana do Castelo pottery factory, recognised by their blue paint.

In addition to a collection of paintings (from the 16th century) and drawings, there are collections of 18th century Indo-Portuguese furniture and Portuguese and Hispanic-Arabic tiles, where the tiles made by Policarpo de Oliveira Bernardes in the 18th century are especially interesting.
