It tells an interesting story, with (perhaps) as much info as fits on the displays. But it dodges questions -- who were the "New Christians" who were active in commerce, or when and how did the empire decline. And the staff were pleasant and wanted...More

This impressive building down near the river is acknowledged as the birth place of Henry the Navigator(1394-1460, known for his role as leading the Golden Age for Portugal's world expansion. Thos building is now a museum.

While the local tourist office denied there was a museum of the history of Porto, Casa do Infante is your place. Inside a building that has been beautifully restored, this is a Roman villa with a fine mosaic floor, a medieval mint and customs house...More

I’m not really a museum person but I thoroughly enjoyed looking at all the interesting displays, they were very engaging and informative. The Roman ruins were fascinating especially the mosaic floor. Allow two hours to fully appreciate this place.
