‪A truly unique museum, the naval hospital ship Gil Eannes was built in Viana do Castelo in 1955 to serve Portuguese codfishing crews working off the coasts of New England, Canada's Maritime Provinces and Greenland.
The hospital ship was decommissioned in 1984, and was going to be sold for scrap in 1997, when a group of friends of the Gil Eannes persuaded the Portuguese Navy not to destroy the ship but instead to sell it to a private foundation who had the vision of repurposing the Gil Eannes into a museum honoring the hospital ship's history.
On a side note of relevance today, the hospital ship even had a separate ward with its own canteen to isolate and treat patients suffering from contagious illnesses!
A must see for visitors to Viana do Castelo‬

‪You can feel how tough life at board Gil Eannes could be. Very well organised museum throughout the boat, fro the normal decks tothe hospital services. Well done. This is clearly a MUST DO in Viana do Castelo‬

‪We really enjoyed our visit to this historic boat. The displays are very interesting, though, as many have said, it would have helped to have had the signs in English as well as Portuguese. It was fascinating to think how large the Portuguese cod fishing industry was in the Newfoundland and that a hospital ship was required to look after them. As you tour the boat you visit operating theatres, recovery wards, quarantine facilities, with all the equipment that you would expect to see in a hospital. There also had to be the accommodation for the doctors, nurses, and specialist. There was even a visit to the engine room. It has been exceptionally well restored

Be prepared for lots of climbing up and down and allow at least an hour as there is so much to see.‬

‪I was without children and I do not speak Portugese. I go to museums to be educated, perfectly in a funny way. The only thing missing for visitors of my profile is to translate labels to English. There were less than 1% translated to English. Even the video was without subtitles (at least 3 minutes that I watched). You can do so much better if you start translating things! Cause I had a good feeling about the exhibition itself - the ship is well maintained, huge, quite interactive, with a reach history. You need to do just a little bit to become the top museum of Viviana for everybody! In the current state, it was rather a disappoitment for me due to very good reviews (apparently mostly by Portugese people).‬

‪Very well planned exhibition one way, one lane to all the rooms - unfortunately most of the exhibition is only in Portuguese (not sure whether they offer audio guide in other languages) but it is still interesting to learn about the part of history. I think it is great for kids but would be slow when there are more visitors as the interior is not so big. ‬

‪The floating museum is a 1955 vintage floating hospital for the fisherman's fleet that fished the waters off Newfoundland. Access requires some climbing (up and down), but the authenticity and history is excellent. ‬

‪This ship offers a very complete dive into the life of a sailor in modern days, showing living quarters, command rooms, engine rooms, decks, kitchen, social areas and medical ones. Very nice views as well.

‪This ship supported the Portuguese fishing fleets off Newfoundland by providing full medical services. Well worth seeing especially the equipment used for operations.‬

‪Being an engineer was lovely on this ship - to see the mechanical, Marine and electrical way of doing things 50+ years ago was wonderful. The engine room and engineering drawings, kitchen, medical facilities etc. Were wonderful.
4€ entry but what I thought was a one hour visit ended up being 2!‬
