Prison on the water

This museum is free but really does not have much to offer
It did have one famous jail break in 1960 of Alvaro Cunhal
Not worth a detour

Worth a quick look.

Museu Municipal de Peniche, is a pretty small museum which is worth a quick visit. Basically the museum houses evidence of the political prison of Salazar’s dictatorship in the 20th century.

Could be much better but absolutely worth a visit..

Could be a lot better as a museum and it's collections and English explanations , however it's a very interesting visit in reagrda to Portugese history and especially when it was used as a prison under the Salazar regime. You only get to see the cells and other parts of the fort if you pay to enter the museum and it's worth it.

Interesting, but only in Portugese
Aug 2016 • Couples
The museum in itself isn't that great or pretty. However, their collection and the history of the building is nice. Unfortunately, the majority of the museum is only in Portugese and only few things are in English. However, the €1.60 was definitely worth it.

Portugese Nacional Holiday

At that time lot's of things to discover about the recent (political) history of Portugal. Some of the info was translated into English, sadly enough not all. Nothing in French, German, ... This is more a museum for Portugese people it gives an insight in the years before the revolution.

Very interesting and only €1.60 entry
Jun 2016
Although could do with some money spent this is such an interesting place to visit. The history as recent as 1970's when they locked up political prisoners and you are able to see the cells and conditions they endured. The maritime exhibits from the local area and vast collection of shells were worth seeing. For less than the price of a coffee in the local cafe go take a look. The gift shop has a good selection of local crafts at very reasonable prices.

Enjoyed a quick visit to museum, lovely views. Limited English explanations, but was enough to get the feel of the place.
