What a great museum. The tram stops right in front of the museum. Entry is inexpensive. There are many impressive model ships, and some real life size boats in a separate room. There are works of art, and weaponry as well. Many date back hundreds of years. For those that are into Portuguese nautical history & for those that just... More

I probably would not have visited this museum had it not been for the fact that one of our friends was very interested in maritime history and the history of the explorers. However, I enjoyed the visit and took tons of photos. The museum is housed in the old monastary dormitories, and it is right next to the cathedral of... More

The museum is very nice. It has a great collection of ship models and nautical instruments and some full size boats and planes. I would have liked more information about the history of Portuguese exploration and trade.

The museum has a large collection of model ships, nautical military uniforms, nautical navigation equipment such as compasses, sextants, and a lot of other impressive devices, plus paintings of ships and the Tagus River, and explanations of everything in both Portuguese and English, along with the historical significance of each item. The second building also has barges and a few... More

Well captioned in Portuguese and English. No audio tours. Lots of exhibits due to the rich nautical history. Took me about 1.5 hr to finish, perhaps because I browsed rather quickly. Not a place I would necessarily recommend to a first time visitor to Lisbon. But to be fair, my spouse and I not really nautico-philes.

As we found in several of Lisbon's museums, the displays here were excellent with very good descriptions in very good English. The models of the old sailing ships were a joy to behold. It was a really excellent visit.

We visited this thinking we'd probably breeze through however it was well done and very interesting. The final stage with the royal barges and early maritime planes were impressive. We had a nice quick ish lunch at the cafe and thought all was good value for money.

We did not expect to spend three hours here but we're so interested in the history and models of ships time flew by.
