Museu do Traje (Costume Museum) 
Located in the historic centre of the city, the former Bank of Portugal building has housed the Costume Museum since 2004. Here you can appreciate the ethnographic wealth of the traditional costumes of Viana.

The exhibits also include the tools used to produce the handmade garments, alongside the permanent exhibitions “A lã e o linho no traje do Alto Minho” (Wool and linen in Alto Minho garments), "Traje à Vianesa” (Viana’s traditional dress) and "Oficina do Ouro” (Gold Workshop).

The Costume Museum organises a great many temporary exhibitions on the theme of Viana’s traditional dress and ethnography.
