The Venue
Museu de Marinha (Navy Museum)

Founded by King D. Luís in 1863, 100 years later the Naval Museum woulb be relocated to a section of the Jerónimos Monastery, becoming symbolically associated with the site that saw the Portuguese fleets setting out to discover the routes over the great oceans.

This museum, with more than 17 thousand items, among them perfect models of ships, from «naus» and «caravelas» to “modern” cruisers, bears fascinating testimony to maritime history and the activities of the Portuguese navigators.

In the entrance hall a huge globe shows the routes of the Portuguese expansion from the 11th to 16th centuries and the sharing of the world between the crowns of Portugal and Castile after the Treaty of Tordesillas.

The large Galliot Pavilion (Pavilhão das Galeotas) houses the imposing royal yachts and brigs, six magníficent galliots, and various examples of traditional Portuguese ships.
