  • Interventions:

  • (1991 e 2012 (reab.))

The Naval Museum opened in 1991 in Olho-de-Boi, next to the Tagus. The museum partially occupied the premises of the extinct Companhia Portuguesa de Pesca, from which it inherited a significant part of its collection. Between 1920 and 1984, the company developed large operations of trawl fishing in the high seas. It was supported by an industrial complex to ensure the maintenance of ships, manufacture of nautical equipment, supply of ice and production of other products for the fleet. This compound also included a social housing quarter and support facilities. The Naval Museum was expanded in 2012 with the rehabilitation of a former foundry mould warehouse. This museum currently showcases the history and memory of the ship building and maintenance in the 20th-century. Its program is developed through permanent and temporary exhibitions, addressing technical, socioeconomic and working dimensions in articulation with the ever-changing territory and estuary.
