Interesting boat ride
Daria_D
, Feb 2020
My husband and I spent about 30-45 minutes visiting the museum, including the boat ride. The boat ride is really the biggest part of the visit, as the beginning portion only takes a few minutes to view the several exhibits. If you are really into history, you may find yourself spending more time navigating through the interactive screens and reading up on some facts. We found the boat ride very interesting and were impressed by all the different displays and special effects. Worth a visit if you are in the area!

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.

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.
