Museu de Marinha

The Maritime Museum is located in one wing of the Jeronimos Monastery, in the chapel built by Henry the Navigator, where sailors came to pray before leaving for their trips overseas. Inside you can find all kinds of maps, documents and artifacts relating to the 'Age of Discovery', which will help you clarify any questions that may arise during the visit.

A separate building houses ornate royal barges, 19th-century fire-fighting machines and several seaplanes.
