What in unexpected delight! From a quite uninspiring exterior the World of Discoveries was an incredible experience. To discover the extent of Portuguese exploration to the new world and to have a glimpse on what life on board the ships would have been like was extraordinary. Your initial concept of the size of the building makes you wonder if there really is a boat ride. The ride through history was certainly a highlight. The concept, displays and overall experience was incredible. Then there was the lunch - another winner. A great selection of tapas served by friendly and helpful staff. A fantastic tour for the young and young at heart.
If you love history this was a very good tour! We didn and #39;t do the lunch but we did enjoy the tour
Very good value, my 2 year old loved the whole experience and has asked to visit next year!
The museum is a little hard to loate it is opposite the Porto museum. Viator booking gives me a little discount for admission. The visit gave me a good idea about shipping of Portugal in middle ages and I was given a good account of the voyages of navigators such as Vasco da Gama and the like. The boat cruise in the museum is quite good but just an outline of Portuguese navigation history but that is easy for children to follow.
