Museu da Marinha

Located next to Jerónimos Monastery, the Museu da Marinha displays the strong relationship of Portugal with the sea, from the power of the era of discoveries to the most recent achievements. Military uniforms, navigation instruments, dozens of scale models and maps are the antechamber to the immense space that houses original vessels, including galleys, Olympic sailboats and the hydroplane in which, in 1922, Gago Coutinho and Sacadura Cabral completed the first aerial crossing the South Atlantic.

This is a great tour for the whole family, children in particular, and for lovers of sea life. Its location in Belém is ideal to combine a view of the Medieval Monastery and the Tower of Belém, along the Tagus River.

Free entrance on Sundays and holidays until 2pm and also on Navy Day, celebrating on May 20.
