Portuguese Museum (Museo Portugues) Tours

Those looking to learn more about Colonia’s Portuguese heritage will find plenty of interest at the Portuguese Museum (Museo Portugues), a small museum devoted to the town’s rich colonial history. Housed in a beautiful early 18th-century colonial building, the museum lies at the heart of Colonia’s UNESCO-listed historic center, just a short walk from the landmark lighthouse. 

The museum’s limited exhibition space none-the-less houses a fascinating collection of Portuguese relics, including 18th-century furniture, porcelain, military uniforms, weapons and naval documents. Highlights include a series of old maps, a family tree of Colonia founder Manuel Lobo and the original stone shield that once adorned the town’s drawbridge.

Practical Info

The Portuguese Museum (Museo Portugues), is located on Henriquez de la Peña in the historic center of Colonia del Sacramento, a short walk from the waterfront. The museum is open daily except Wednesday and Friday, from 11am to 5pm, and admission is UR$50.
