The Maritime Museum (Museu de Marinha) is installed in the west wing of the Jerónimos Monastery. The museum celebrates the XV and XVI centuries’ Portuguese domination of the seas and the discovery of new worlds.

The exhibits include historical paintings, archaeological items and many scale models of ships used in Portugal since the 15th century. Highlights of the museum are a couple of royal ceremonial barges from the 18th century and the first seaplane that crossed the South Atlantic, from Lisboa to Rio de Janeiro, in 1922.

The entertainment will be performed by the Instituto Superior Técnico (IST) students´ tuna and a folk group of “Cante Alentejano”.

The IST tuna is a group of engineering students in their traditional black gowns who play traditional musical instruments and sing serenades in a very lively atmosphere.

“Cante Alentejano” is a genre of traditional two-part singing performed by amateur choral groups in southern Portugal, characterized by distinctive melodies, lyrics and vocal styles, and performed without instrumentation. This very special folk polyphonic singing has been chosen by UNESCO as “Intangible Cultural Heritage”. Visit the UNESCO link for more information.
