I am sure the Museum would have been interesting but it was closed to visitors for two days on 24-25 May with no warning or explanation on the museum website. Very disappointing for those visitors to Porto for only a few days.

When you want to entertain a 7-year old boy, you probably can’t go wrong with trains or trams. This proved to be the case when we visited the Porto Tramcar Museum with our grandson. To get to the museum, we rode the #18 tram from...More
