  • I had already visited boats before, but nothing prepared me for this museum, worth every penny. The boat is very careful and very impressive. It is unmissable to visit the ship! Obviously it is necessary to pay attention to people with difficulty in mobility because as much as it is ample, I believe that the stairs can hinder the visit. I also recommend seeing the documentary at the end of the visit, made with great delicacy and shows the function of the ship formerly with real images!

  • Recently restored hospital ship, where you can take a time trip and see the whole history of cod fishing. It is very well organized so that you can make a view without missing any details. Visit advised both schools and families. Very good!

  • Very interesting. We all enjoyed it. It was amazing to move between the different decks and see the inside of a ship. WOW! A ship from the 1950s really had a lot of tech on-board. The engine room was my favourite. The size of those engines, absolutely mind blowing! Definitely worth it. A must see if you are in the area.
  • To me it's the best visit to do in Viana de Castello Gil Eannes offers quite a unique experience. I've never heard before of such boats providing support to other in such way. It's quite interesting to find a bakery, a grocery store, a barber... In a boat. But what's most interesting to see is how they kinda build an entire hospital inside this boat. Visiting an entire hospital is quite rare I guess, even more in a boat
