Sea Museological Centre of Figueira da Foz

The Núcleo Museológico do Mar (Sea Museological Centre) of Figueira da Foz was opened in 2003 in the city of Buarcos, in the Coimbra district, Portugal, with the aim of recovering and disclosing the main historical and practical most identifying fishermen memories of Figueira da Foz.

This museological centre is divided into three thematic areas:

The first one is dedicated to fishing activities in Figueira da Foz, where activities such as fishing or sales are explored. In this area stand out the ethnological materials (boats mockups, suits, etc.)


The second is focused in the cod fishing and the importance of this activity for the economic and sociocultural development of Figueira da Foz.

The third area is linked to the artistic expressions of the fishing activities and the manifestation of faith with divine protection.

The collection of this museum is completed with written, photographic and audiovisual document; and private and collective memoirs about experiences lived on the sea.
