(750+ reviews on the web)
Specialty Museum
Named after one of the most famous ships in the history of navigation, Nao Victoria Museo features full-size replicas of historical ships, weapons, and ancient navigation tools, as well as an outdoor shipbuilding workshop. Nao Victoria was part of Ferdinand Magellan's fleet and the only ship of the five to complete the first trip around the globe. Interactive exhibits allow you to board the ships, handle the sailing rig, and relive the adventures of explorers such as Magellan, Williams, and Shackleton. On the decks life-size figures depict daily tasks--get up close and observe their costumes, muskets, and swords. Audio guides are available in six languages.

  • Too bad here. Stay away from the city. Very expensive. Something like 30 reais per person. Take a picture and got back from taxi ($ $ $) to town.
