World of Discoveries Museum

A trip through the world of Portugal's explorers

World of Discoveries Museum, Porto


This interactive museum/theme park makes visitors embark on the epic journeys of the Portuguese explorers. It recreates life-sized characters and sceneries of the different sea routes and lands mapped by the Portuguese, and part of the visit is made on a boat navigating through the continents.

In one of the rooms are navigation instruments and maps, as well as a 4D globe where visitors get to see how the world was known in different periods in time.
Everything is explained in six languages: Portuguese, English, Spanish, French, German, and Italian.

At the restaurant there's a menu with foods from the different world regions, from Africa to Asia and Brazil.
It's open throughout the week.
