Maritime Museum
King Joao II

On the upper level of the Maritime Museum an interesting display of Portuguese Shipwrecks was opened in 1997. Other interesting exhibits at the shipwreck gallery include information of influential Portuguese nationals who were involved with the Maritime History of South Africa. King Joao II and Prince Henry the Navigator bring royalty into the realms of explorers such as Bartolomeu Dias, Vasco Da Gama and Diogo Cao.
