Begun in the 1800's as a children's musuem then converted to a minature of Portugal and their colonies. What an unusal way to display history. Be sure to keep walking to the back, its much further than you think. Take a picture sitting in a tea pot. Climb to the top of the lighthouse. Look at all the dolls dressed in intricately detailed period dress. Take the kids but go even if you dont have a kid to take.
