Lisbon has a long and proud maritime history. This museum focuses on that long naval history with model ships, nautical instruments and uniforms. Among the armadas of model boats, this museum has gems such as Vasco da Gama's portable wooden altar and the rich, polished private quarters of the 1900 UK-built royal yacht Amélia. There are also ornate royal barges, the biggest a 1780 neo-Viking number.
On weekends a children's museum offers brightly colored creative activities.
The museum is housed in the north and west wings of the Monastery of Geronimo. Take tram 15 to stop Monastere dos Jeronimos.
