These are one of those museums whose visit is not "mandatory" but if you are a lover of weapons and military history then you cannot miss it! located in the center of the central area of Porto, the military museum has at our disposal a wide variety of heavy and light weapons from many parts of the world, we will have the opportunity to understand a little what the clothing of a medieval warrior was like and at the same time be able to manipulate ship and land cannons along with their projectiles! Today you will learn a little about military weapons.๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ’ฅ

Estos son de aquellos museos cuya visita no es "obligatoria" pero si eres amante de las armas e historia militar entonces no puedes perdertelo! ubicado en el centro del casco central de Porto el museo militar tiene a nuestra disposicion una gran variedad de armamento pesado y ligero de muchas partes del mundo, tendremos la oportunidad de entender un poco como era la vestimenta de un guerrero medieval y al mismo tiempo poder manipular caรฑones de barcos y terrestre junto con sus proyectiles! hoy aprenderas un poco sobre armamento militar.๐Ÿšฉโœˆ๐Ÿช‚๐Ÿ›ฉ

Why visit the military museum?๐Ÿ™‡โ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿงญ/Por que visitar el museo militar?๐Ÿšฉ๐ŸŒ

What do you think of this photograph? you can see several types of cannons of different shapes and caliber, so it is for each cannon there was a "different caliber", each one was capable of "shooting" cannonballs of different sizes, however they were not only capable of shooting balls of iron if not metallic objects when the situation on the battlefield was complicated due to lack of ammunition! Some of these cannons date back to the 16th and 17th centuries, some were used on ships and others in land combat!๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ’‚โ€โ™‚๏ธ
Que te parece esta fotografia? puedes ver varios tipos de caรฑones de diferentes formas y calibre, asi es para cada caรฑon existia un "calibre diferente", cada uno era capaz de "disparar" las balas de caรฑon de diferentes tamaรฑos, sin embargo no solo eran capaz de disparar bolas de hierro si no objetos metalicos cuando la situacion en el campo de batalla era complicada por falta de municiones! algunos de estos caรฑones datan del siglo XVI y XVII unos fueron usados en barcos y otros en combates terrestres!๐Ÿšฉ๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿ’ฅ

Heavy weaponry๐Ÿฆพ๐Ÿงญ

And how do I know all that? Well, because I learned it when visiting the museum! So I encourage you to make a short stop if you want to educate yourself and learn a little about ancient military history, we could then say that the mission of the military museum is to: "promote the appreciation, enrichment, and exhibition of the military historical heritage" that is not It is only part of Portugal, we can also see weapons from the great war!๐Ÿง ๐ŸŒ๐Ÿ’ฅ

Y como se todo eso? pues porque lo he aprendido al visitar el museo! entonces te motivo a hacer una pequeรฑa parada si deseas culturizarte y aprender un poco de historia militar antigua, podriamos entonces decir que la mision del museo militar es la de: "promover la valorizacion, enriquesimiento, y la exposicion del patrimonio historico militar" que no solo forma parte de Portugal, tambien podremos ver armamento de la gran guerra!๐Ÿ“š๐ŸŒ

What do we learn inside the museum?๐Ÿ™‡โ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿงญ/Que aprendemos dentro del museo?๐Ÿšฉ๐ŸŒ

Here we will have the opportunity to learn the universal military historical heritage, normally I really like to learn about old light weapons and my favorites are those of the Second World War, the Germans were very advanced and created one of the best military weapons of all time, including the MG42, soldiers in World War II trained to cause as many casualties as possible, and it is not only about measuring the range of a bullet, when a 7.92mm caliber bullet is fired it makes a parabola In other words, if the weapon is raised a few degrees upwards, the range of the projectile increases, therefore the Germans learned that it is not about shooting people individually, it was about knowing the range to hit groups of soldiers!๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ’ฅ
Aqui tendremos la oportunidad de aprender el patrimonio historico militar universal, normalmente me gusta mucho aprender sobre armas ligeras antiguas y mis favoritas son las de la segunda guerra mundial, los Alemanes fueron muy avanzados y crearon una de las mejores armas militares de todos los tiempos, incluyendo la MG42, los soldados en la segunda guerra mundial se entrenaban para causar la mayor cantidad de bajas posibles, y es que no solo se trata de medir el alcance de una bala, cuando es disparado una bala calibre 7,92mm esta hace una parabola, osea si se levanta el arma algunos grados hacia arriba se incrementa el alcance del proyectil, por tanto los alemanes aprendieron que no se trata de disparar individualmente a personas, se trataba de saber el alcance para impactar grupos de soldados!๐Ÿ”ซ๐Ÿ’ฃ

I think that the most important role of museums like these is the ability to restore old military weapons, many weapons found are so damaged that major restorations are needed to be able to create a model that is as realistic as possible, and specialists work here whose job is that! give life to weapons that were forgotten in the past! besides being able to tell its story and how it was used! This time in the photo is an iconic German pistol that was normally used by high-ranking soldiers! and then a Lewis machine gun that was used for the first time in the first world war by the British, weighed 11 kilos and could shoot bullets up to 7.92 mm caliber.๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿซ
Creo que el papel mas importante de museos como estos es la capacidad de restaurar armamento militar antiguo, muchas armas encontradas estan tan daรฑadas que se necesita de grandes restauraciones para poder lograr crear un modelo lo mas realista posible, y aqui trabajan especialistas que cuya labor es esa! dar vida a armas que fueron olvidadas en el pasado! ademas de poder contar su historia y como se utilizaba! esta que vez en la foto es iconica una pistola alemana que normalmente era usada por soldados de alto rango! y luego una ametralladora Lewis que fue usada por primera vez en la primera guerra mundial por los britanicos, pesaba 11 kilos y podia disparar balas hasta de calibre 7,92 mm๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿซ๐Ÿ’‚โ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿค”

This was also a very advanced and lethal weapon for the time, it is a Vickers machine gun, you can see the bullets there in the photo, it was created in 1912 and used in the First World War, the problem with it was that it required handling of three men, it was not light and weighed more than 23 kilos, it fired five hundred rounds per minute!๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
Esta tambien fue un arma muy avanzada y letal para la epoca se trata de una ametralladora Vickers, las balas puedes verlas alli en la foto, fue creada en 1912 y usada en la primera guerra mundial, el problema de ella era que para manipularla se requeria de tres hombres, no era ligera y pesaba mas de 23kilos, disparaba quinientas rondas por minuto!๐Ÿ›ฉ๐Ÿช‚

One of my favorite parts inside the museum is being able to see the original clothing of each army, here we have a collection of military clothing from the German, French, Portuguese and British army! some of them were restored and other pieces are in excellent condition!๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ’‚โ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ’‚โ€โ™€๏ธ
Una de mis partes favoritas dentro del museo es poder ver la indumentaria original de cada ejercito, aqui tenemos una coleccion de vestimenta militar del ejercito, aleman, frances, portugues y britanico! algunas de ellas fueron restauradas y otras piezas estan en excelente estado de conservacion!๐Ÿงค๐Ÿฅพ

Collection of military toys๐Ÿ™‡โ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿงญ/Coleccion de juguetes militares๐Ÿšฉ๐ŸŒ

I had never seen so many collectible military figures in my life, it must be one of the largest private collections in the world, I asked the man in charge if there was a record of how many toys were in the museum and he told me that he did not know an exact number but what happened to twenty thousand!!! They literally have the collection of all the military armies in the world, there wasn't a country that wasn't here! In addition to seeing tanks and war combat scenarios!๐Ÿ’‚โ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ’‚โ€โ™‚๏ธ
Nunca en mi vida habia visto tantas figuras militares de coleccion, debe ser una de las colecciones privadas mas grandes del mundo, le pregunte al seรฑor encargado que si habia un registro de cuantos juguetes habian en el museo y me dijo que no sabia un numero exacto pero que pasaban los veinte mil!!! literalmente tienen la coleccion de todos los ejercitos militares del mundo, no habia un pais que no estaba aqui! ademas de ver tanques y escenarios de combates de guerra!๐Ÿ”ซ๐Ÿ“š

War medals and insignia๐Ÿ™‡โ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿงญ/Medallas e insignias de guerra๐Ÿšฉ๐ŸŒ

In the museum we can also see a large collection of medals, awards and war insignia, some are so old that they belong to the 18th century, others are recognitions of generals who participated in the First World War, all are Portuguese and here we can learn a little More about the military culture of my country.๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿซ๐Ÿค”
En el museo tambien podremos ver una gran coleccion de medallas, reconocimientos e insignias de guerra, algunas son tan antiguas que pertenecen al siglo XVIII, otras son reconocimientos a generales que participaron en la primera guerra mundial, todas son Portuguesas y aqui podremos aprender un poco mas sobre la cultura militar de mi pais.๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Heavy weaponry๐Ÿ™‡โ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿงญ/Armamento pesado๐Ÿšฉ๐ŸŒ

From the first cannon that used gunpowder to fire iron balls to more modern cannons, all were built to serve as support to land troops and also take advantage in maritime wars with ships, with modernization the cannons were capable of reaching long distances. and even hundreds of kilometers, making wars less bloody and more strategic, many of them had adaptations to be transported in vehicles, animals, or people!๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿงค
Desde el primer caรฑon que usaba polvora para disparar bolas de hierro hasta canones mas modernos, todos fueron construidos para poder servir como apoyo a las tropas terrestres y tambien tomar ventaja en guerras maritimas con barcos, con la modernizacion los caรฑones eran capaz de alcanzar grandes distancias e inclusive cientos de kilometros, tornando las guerras menos sangrientas y mas estrategicas, muchos de ellos tenian adaptaciones para ser transportados en vehiculos, animales, o personas!๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ’ฃ

Medieval collection๐Ÿ™‡โ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿงญ/Coleccion medieval๐Ÿšฉ๐ŸŒ

It's crazy when we watch movies on TV and we don't understand that many of the movements of medieval soldiers were slower than we thought, medieval armor could weigh up to fifty kilos, on average they all weighed no less than 23kg, representing half the weight. weight of the person, and let's remember that people before were much smaller!๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿงค
Es una locura cuando vemos peliculas en la television y no entendemos que muchos de los movimientos de los soldados medievales eran mas lento de lo que pensamos, las armaduras medievales podian pesar hasta cincuenta kilos, en promedio todas pesaban no menos de 23kg representando la mitad del peso de la persona, y recordemos que las personas antes eran mucho mas pequeรฑas!๐Ÿ‘ธ๐Ÿคด

Finally, the military museum dates back to its construction from the 19th century, from there it has stored and documented countless documents and military weapons, you have a small library available to read and learn much more about war things!๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ“š

Por ultimo el museo militar remonta su construccion desde el siglo XIX, desde alli ha almacenado y documentado un sin numero de documentos y armamentos militares, tienes a disposicion una pequeรฑa biblioteca para leer y aprender mucho mas sobre cosas belicas!๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿ›ฉ๐Ÿช‚๐Ÿšฉ

Either you're big or many of these weapons are smaller than I expected! (And I'm not talking about the toys!)

Beautiful sharing, this museum is very beautiful, there are many weapons that I don't know, the big machine gun with the round magazine located on it drove me crazy, fantastic! Have a nice weekend ;)

Nice museum
