  • It is easy to locate reaching Caniçal, as indicated. It is a museum that is unforgettable for the specific nature of your matter. The tour is following with an audioguide that will activate sound tracks automatically according to moving exhibitor at exhibitor. It is very educational and can learn a lot from how he lived of the exploitation of the whale in the area until not many years ago. Boats and other tools related to hunting and exploitation of the Cetacea, apart from photographs and audiovisual are. At the end of the Museum there is a room with reproductions of a boat, a whale, a sperm whale and several audiovisual, one in three dimensions. It is a museum that really like children by visual and dynamic that is. It has a cafeteria which can be ordered to eat sandwiches, salads and soups. I ordered a salad with canned tuna and sardines which was very good. My son ordered a soup of vegetables, which ultimately cost him eat by how big that were some pieces of vegetables and the cafeteria Lady passed it from the mixer, ended up without a problem. The price of food was very cheap and now say that the staff was lovely. Visit may take more than one couple of hours if you wish to see the audiovisual and listening to the audioghia. My son asked several days if we weren't going to return to the Museum of whales, which gives idea how much that pleases children (aged five).
