Had found this on here and sought it out. Had to be careful with timings as it officially closed between 12.30 & 2.00. In fact once you're inside it didn't seem to matter.
The building on the main road has 2 exhibition floors. Upstairs is...More
As noted by other reviewers the tin soldiers bit is somewhat limited in its appeal, but the rest of the museum is excellent. Portugal’s contribution to WW1 is covered in depth, and the post-colonial period is treated with an honesty and pragmatism that the French...More

So... I was hoping for some tanks, but it has some rare inter-war artillery and some nicer early cannons, along with really great WWI collection. The first floor is toy soliders, just be prepared. Also b aware no book store on Sunday. But, in the...More
I went to this museum at the request of my history nerd husband. Despite my lack of history knowledge, I found this museum to be interesting (thanks to my husband's commentary).
The first two sections were in the main building. The first section had miniatures...More
