The educational service of the maritime museum of Ílhavo aims to promote the maritime heritage, tangible and intangible, the local history and maritime culture, and make known the memory of the cod fishery and agro-maritime chores as identities in constant mutation. It also aims to raise awareness of environmental issues related to the preservation of the oceans and the biodiversity of the lagoon.
Through actions that strengthen maritime culture and a diverse offering that combines knowledge and pleasure, adapted to each age group, the museum unveils its collections and exhibitions, both permanent and temporary, as well as its building and architecture, in an interaction between interior and exterior spaces. The ship museum Santo André, extension of the museum, allows to experience life aboard a classic cod-fishing trawler.
Visit the maritime museum of Ílhavo is embarking on an adventure of the senses.
