Maritime Museum

Richly decorated boats, models, maps, astrolabes, and much more wait for you at the Maritime Museum of Lisbon, an attraction for kids and adults.

The best way to experience the glorious past of Portugal is to visit one of Lisbon’s most original museums: the Maritime Museum (Museu de Marinha in Portuguese language). The halls rewrite the history of the great adventures of the Portuguese sailors and explorers who expanded the borders of the world through their discoveries.

A surprising collection of more than 1700 pieces, including more than 400 naval models and 30 ships (some perfectly preserved), along with relics, maps, tools, and documents wait for you at this museum located at one wing of the beautiful Jeronimos Monastery.

A must visit place for cartography and maritime lovers; this museum is a testimony of the old maritime Portuguese power and it is capable of enchanting visitors, adults, and kids.
