Trip Planner: Europe / Portugal / Central Portugal / Coimbra District / Coimbra / Portugal dos Pequenitos
At Portugal dos Pequenitos, explore a miniature world displaying scaled-down versions of some of Portugal's most important monuments and buildings. The attraction was built in 1940 in honor of the nation's people, history, and cultural influence. While best suited for children, who will enjoy interacting with the exhibits and feeling large in this small world, adults will also find the historical value of the displays interesting. View a copy of the famous window from the Convento de Cristo in the historic city of Tomar, various monuments from the capital of Lisbon, and traditional houses. Check out the costume museum which includes over 300 pieces of miniature clothing, the naval museum full of tiny ships, and the furniture museum with small pieces handcrafted from exotic woods. Also, stop by the different pavilions dedicated to the former Portuguese colonies. The park lacks covered areas, so keep this in mind on hot days. Plan my day in Coimbra using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

This place is absolutely hilarious, it was built during the fascist regime and you can clearly tell, it’s extremely neglected, maintenance is an absolute disgrace, they probably haven’t done any... more »
Portugal dos Pequenitos is Portugal's first ever attempt at a theme park. It features small kid-scale replicas of typical houses and famous Portuguese monuments. It was built during the fascist regime, and it still shows, if you can read between the lines and grasp the "patriotic" and stereotyped message; but the effort to keep the original trace and style is remarkable, and should be commended. Portugal dos Pequenitos is not only a theme park about Portugal, monuments and houses, but also about the Salazar regime's view on our own country, "colonies", and people. A classic, and still fun. Kids actually love it, even if they miss most of the historic references.
This place is amazing for the little ones! Worth the visit. Lots to see and look around. They even have a small cafe where you can have lunch. Would recommend to anyone with children.
Good fun for our little girl. A lot of houses to play in. It's good if you have kids and entrance only 10€ per adult. Free for our toddler.
A great place to take your kids but definitely overpriced if you go by yourself and or other adults, it's definitely just a place for kids. There's some exhibited pieces from old Portuguese colonies but without descriptions so there's really not much museum going on really. There's also a costume exhibition, which for some might be really creepy and for others mind-boggling
Crowded. Stupid expensive. Not very clean. Definitely racially insensitive. Only one ticket window open. The guy running the train was very nice. My 3 year old thought it was fine.
