Museu Marítimo de Ílhavo
The Maritime Museum of Ílhavo

Seas gallery

This permanent exhibition includes a rich and diversified collection of small size boat models, nautical instruments ad fishing equipment that express the involvement of the local people in the Portuguese maritime discoveries.A riqueza desta exposição decorre, também, de uma reutilização do espaço e de novas formas de diálogo com a
arquitectura do edifício.
Among dozens of displayed objects, are models of cod-fishing schooners and trawlers, schooner hulls and half-hulls donated by Master Manuel Maria Mónica’s shipyard, some older wooden and brass compasses, beautiful sundials, chronometers and binnacles.
This exhibition will go through a renewal during 2012.
