This is a beautifully restored frigate and well worth the inexpensive and quick crossing to cacilhas. Well worth visit, but be aware it is shut on Mondays.

The ship is impressive, though I was disappointed that it's not afloat. Cheap, because it doesn't take long to look round. (Their merch was far from cheap. We didn't buy any.) We were particularly enamoured by the mannequins of the nautical men of yesteryear, who...More

There are two very good reasons to add this to your Lisbon "must see" list. Firstly, the ferry across to Cacilhas is so cheap, so frequent and so easy to do that you'll really regret not getting the photographs of Lisbon from across the river....More
