Museo Portugues, Colonia del Sacramento

4.1
#1 of 13 in Museums in Colonia del Sacramento
Travel back to the colonial era at Museo Portugues, a small cultural heritage museum set in a charming 17th-century home. Central to the museum is the Portuguese colonial experience, exhibited through a range of artifacts that once belonged to original settlers. Particularly interesting is the collection of colonial-era maps, made at a time when European empire building and exploration sparked the golden age of cartography. Displays and dioramas help bring this period back to life, while information panels can provide additional insight into the area's history.

  • This museum offers a series of porcelain and curious objects from the colonial era that were found in the city. It is interesting to see these things that allow to understand how life was in those days. You can also see how was an epoca´, how was it built and what everyday life of yesteryear

  • For those who enjoy history, is a full plate! I love to visit, the Museum still has a colonial-era structure and in your exhibition shows details of the life of the Portuguese colonists, since House and kitchen items to objects used for enslavement. To enter you need to pay 50 pesos in the Municipal Museum (which is in the same square) and you have the right to enter all municipal museums (Municipal, Casa Nacarello, Portuguese, Spanish and national archives). Worth, is almost all on the same block and is very interesting!

  • 科洛尼亞老城裏面的葡萄牙歷史遺產展示,本身只是一個小房子,但是保存很完好,至少有好幾百年的歷史,可以看看當年建築是什麼樣。
  • Lovely little museum in this former Portuguese colonial town of Colonia del Sacramento.
  • Interesting place for history of Colonia
  • Very interesting. Don't be afraid to ask, staff are very skilled and they have very good information. Buy tickets at the Museum Municipal (in the same plaza) of 50 Uruguayan pesos (less than $2! and 6 museums can be visited.) When you buy the tickets they explain what is the best route. Open from 11:00 to 16:30.
