World of Discoveries Museum opens this April 25

The interactive museum and theme park World of Discoveries from Douro Azul in Miragaia, Porto, will be opened to the public on April 25, 2014.

The visitors to World of Discoveries will embark in a true journey back to the age of Portuguese Discoveries using high technology and real size replicas as well as historic sceneries.

The museum’s restaurant has a 150-guest capacity and it will be open daily with a menu from the different countries and regions that made part of the Exploration period – namely, Africa, China, India, Japan and Brazil. The museum shop will also display and sell epoch products from these countries.

The museum expects 300,000 visitors a year and all the contents will be translated into six languages: Portuguese, Spanish, English, French, German and Italian. There will also be available an audio guide for the Caravel route.

The full project occupies a 4 000 square meter area and a 200 square meter space available for temporary and itinerant exhibitions that can be used for events and groups up to 200 people.
