Built entirely of wood, Fragata D. Fernando II e Glória is a one-of-a-kind ship in all the world. Climb aboard, take a trip through history and feel like a true sailor, facing the sea fearlessly.

Fragata D. Fernando II e Glória was launched in 1843, being the last ship of the Portuguese Navy to be powered exclusively by sail and the last ship to make the "Carreira da Índia." For 33 years, it has traveled more than 100,000 nautical miles, the equivalent of five trips around the world. Her name is a tribute to the Queen of Portugal, D. Maria II, and her husband, D. Fernando II.

The ship made her last trip in 1878, when it became a part of the Naval Artillery School until 1938. In 1963, the history of the Frigate was ravaged by a great fire, which left it almost submerged in the Tagus River until 1992. At that time the restoration work began and the frigate opened to the public as a museum at EXPO 98.
