    The museum is attached to the Jeronimos Monastery so it's an easy transition once you've gone through the cathedral and monastery. Very much worth the visit. Beautifully detailed replicas of various ships, paintings and historical accounting of the rich history and importance of the Portuguese explorers and their fleets. Full sized boats displayed as well. Don't miss the King and Queen's ship cabins!

    This place was remarkable! I have been to military museums all around the world, and this one is one of the best. The streets were under construction, so it was challenging to find the entrance, but once we did, it was well worth it. It only cost 3 euros to get in (cash only). As with most military museums, there are lots of interesting weapons. The cannons and carriages from the 1500 and 1600's were unique and impressive. However, part of the unforeseen draw to this museum was the beautiful building and layout of the displays. The interior is exquisite! It felt like I was touring through a miniature Palce of Versailles. The rooms and staircases are gorgeous with weaponry of many eras adorning them. Even more remarkable was the fact that we spent 2 hours inside and only saw one other visitor. Highly recommend!

    This museum is located in a historic barracks in the Chiado district and next door to the Convento do Carmo.

    The Museum is dedicated to the history of the GNR and contains both a library and archive..

    Members of the GNR are military personnel and have served overseas in peacekeeping roles.

    The building had been well maintained and painted in cream with heritage green doors.
