WORLD OF DISCOVERIES is, from April this year, a must-see to fully understand the country's extraordinary history. An Interactive Museum and Theme Park that recreates the fantastic odyssey of the Portuguese navigators, crossing oceans to discover an unknown world. Get onboard of a caravel and prepare to discover new worlds, flavors and people in a total area of 5000 square meters. Some of the technological features as 4D Globes and Fog Screens are completely unprecedented in the country and open doors to an entirely new and fantastic time when setting off to the sea was the most adventurous thing one could do, the equivalent of today's space travelling. The journey ends up in a shop and restaurant, both themed and willing to guide you through richness and culinary from the four corners of the world.

This is an informative museum for both kids and adults and provides a wealth of multilingual information on the history of Portugal, and especially on the overseas voyages. Real life models enhance the visit & the boat ride is awesome!!! Guaranteed fun! :-)

It was a very pleasent experience. Museum offers a lot of curious objects from the period of Portuguese discoveries. My children and I absolutely loved the lovely lady who explained us all the details and shared some curiousities. I highly recommend this place to everyone!

This was a interesting interactive museum explaining the history of Portugal as it relates to it’s explorers. I rated it a little lower because the interactive screens were not working properly. The displays are well done and the river ride entertaining and informative.

Not a very good museum. Many displays are on screens that one has to navigate around in oneself by touching, which is highly unsanitary, and the screens don't contain much info that one doesn't already know. There wasn't a whole lot of interest otherwise either....More
