This museum, located near the Port Authority, is dedicated to the art of navigation throughout the ages. Visitors will find a fairly good display of models depicting old vessels as well as samples of regional boats. Highlights of the museum collection include the galley built in Salvador, Bahia, which was used by D. João and his family back in 1808, and also some artifacts found in wreckages of ships that went under along the Brazilian coast. Youngsters will enjoy visiting the submarine Riachuelo, now a floating museum. The destroyer Bauru, a relic from World War II, is also moored at the dock. Free.
