Overview

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.

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

The feedback was very different about this museum, it was even thought not to go. I am happy that we went there, my kids were excited and I really enjoyed it. The museum is not big, which is even good, because children quickly lose interest...More

We stumbled across this museum while on a walk and it looked intriguing on the outside so we gave it a go. We should have kept walking past. In the US we would classify this type of place as a tourist trap. 14 euros to...More

Excellent atmosphere and interesting information with the audioguide. Would have been a 5 rating if the boat-tour was in English.
