The Military Museum of Porto features an interesting collection of light weapons, army uniforms and armament, vehicles, cannons and heavy artillery. It might seem like any other military museum, but it has one great difference.
Porto’s military museum has a stunning collection of miniature figures of soldiers from all the armies in the world and figures that represent the most prominent world military leaders and dictators, from Ramses II to Hitler.
You’ll find visiting this museum quite enjoyable, especially if you’re interested in the topic. However, it isn’t one of the main sights to see in Porto, so we would recommend keeping it on a to-do list for the second time you travel to this magical city.
