Museum Open in this Schedule Check location

In front of the Oporto Alfândega, inside the old warehouses of the Real Companhia Velha, you can find the World of Discoveries. This is an interactive museum and theme park dedicated to the Portuguese discoveries, and was inaugurated in 2014.

The museum offers a historical trip through the Epic of the Portuguese Discoveries, using scenarios built to scale.

This space also has a navigable area with replicas of small boats where the Portuguese sea paths are recreated, passing through China, India, Japan, Indonesia, North Africa and Brazil.
