  • Museum with the history of cod fishermen from the early days, with fishing boats and display existing environments on the boats. Very interesting and educational.

Worth a visit.

  • 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

  • Museological space very interesting and quite extensive in the interpretation of the traditional activity of cod fishing.
