Ranked #2 of 10 things to do in Belmonte
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed June 11, 2013

This interactive museum is a fabulous introduction to the period of world discovery by the Portuguese mariners of old. There are lots of visually interesting exhibits, like wide screen video of an overnight storm at sea, or music and food videos that change as you stand at certain points. Even though most signs are in Portuguese, and some of the translations to English are hilarious, most exhibits are easy to understand and educational.
