This is a fantastic mini-Portugal, from the history of the discoveries to the types of traditional houses to "famous architecture mash-ups" which are really clever. It is a bit pricey, and it could use a bit more care and upkeep, especially around the colonies' area. Also, it could use a major 21st century updating in the presentation of the colonies, which was awkward and imperialistic in tone-- bordering on outright racist. For that reason, I would suggest skipping that section with kids .
But the section further back, with the little houses to climb around, and the tales of the famous explorers and the "mini" cathedrals-- that is really charming, and we happily spent a half day here.
