The Hat Museum in Sāo Joāo de Madeira was founded in 1914 by António José Olivera and is one of the most important points of interest in this Portuguese city.

This company reinvented the old-fashioned hat by making it with merino wool, a genuine turning point that boosted the hat industry not only in the province, but all throughout Portugal. The factory is located on Rua Olivera Junior Street, in honour of its creator, and closed its doors as a manufacturer in 1995. Today it is a museum that shows tourists the history of the old building and explains the art of hat making and craftwork. A few metres from the museum you can find a cafeteria/restaurant as well as several shops. To access the area, we recommend parking your car at Rua Joāo de Deus Street, where a Saba car park is located, open 24 hours a day.
