The Museu Do Combatente is housed in an 18th century fort guarding the approach to Lisbon on the River Tagus and is dedicated to the men and women killed in action among the Portuguese armed forces from their bloody involvement in World War I through equally grisly conflicts in colonial Angola and Mozambique.

The Museu Do Combatente displays a collection of uniforms, arms, a tank, the cockpit of a Fiat G91 aircraft widely used by the Portuguese Airforce during the Guerra do Ultramar (Colonial Wars) in Africa, many World War II vintage model aircraft and a number of pieces of artillery.

The museum pays tribute to and honors the members of the Portuguese armed forces who have given their lives for their country in various conflicts.
