    The museum was my ten year old son's choice on his birthday and the whole family had a blast. The museum and aquarium were very entertaining and the ships were beautiful and very informative.  more »

  • It has a nice aquarium with codfish. Other curious artefacts with explanations.
  • Worth to visit. Excellent exhibition of fisherman culture throughout the history. Also have an aquarium with iconic fish, the cod - bacalhau
  • Museum dedicated to the fishing of codfish; excellent aquarium filled with codfish which can be viewed from different angles. Actual fishing boat inside and moliceiro boats also. Lots of interesting exhibits all about the life of the fishermen.
  • Great visit! Since being Portuguese is synonymous with eating cod fish, everyone and their children should visit this beautiful, educative, and grand museum. No excuses
  • Fantastic museum, aquarium and investigation center for the maritime culture which focuses on the codfish Ílhavo traditions and on the Ria de Aveiro lagoon boats and fishing communities.
