  • A must for anyone visiting Lisbon - on your way to the Cristo Rei Sanctuary (Christ the King), definitely stop at the national treasure that is the Fernando II frigate, which is open to the public. Built in Daman (Portuguese India), it was the last ship to sail from Goa to Lisbon under Portuguese banners. See and relive history - they even let you ring the ships bell! It's €4 absolutely well spent :)
  • I happened to stumble upon this museum, of sorts, when on the way to see the Cristo Rei statue in Almada. Needless to say I was very happy to find this place as it was most enjoyable. I do have a fascination in old ships due to their craftsmanship and it was so lovely being able to walk about, and inside, such a beautiful ship. The admission fee was very low (4 euros I believe) and the ship itself had the top deck and two lower decks to explore. It was in very good condition and really made you realise just how big these ships were and how life on them might had been like. It takes about an hour to an hour and a half to see everything and if you are ever in Almada I would highly recommend a visit here. 5 stars out of 5!
  • Really nice experience, interesting too see how was sailor's life in the past centuries. Worth buying the ticket.
  • Great place to visit. 4 floors of pure story, engineering and imagination.
  • It's nice place
