Museo Portugues, Colonia del Sacramento
Categories: History Museums, Museums
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.
