Portugal dos Pequenitos, Coimbra

(1,200+ reviews on the web)
Historic Site Tourist Spot
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.

  • Cute little theme park, bit overpriced at 10 euros pp. I wouldn't have made a visit but there was little else to do in town. The miniature village was cute though the bit at the entrance was off-putting. It is intended as a museum but it's poorly made with little/no signage.
  • Fun fun fun, only if you are prepared to let the inner child out. We got combined tickets with the university tour. So only paid around 2€ for entry. Definitely a park for kids but gained some insight into Portuguese architecture.
  • Nice sight to view but heavily over-prized. Better spend your day in the rest of the city which is free ;-)
  • A nice place to leave the kids play arround. They Love this place.
  • Very nice to know a bit more about Portugal's architecture and history in a fun way. Great for kids but adults can also spend an enjoyable time here.
