Very interesting to know how powerful and how important Portugal was at the time and that such important people came from this small village.
Some of the screens were not working.
Friendly staff.

Attention, all the texts in this museum are in Portuguese.
The museum is pretty new and have some nice interactive attractions and provide a good overview of the navigations, mainly the Cabral expedition to Brazil.
