My husband is very interested in lighthouses and we try to see as many as possible. This is a small but interesting museum. There is a small cafe outside where you can sit and enjoy tapas and a drink.

A "free" lighthouse museum with sea and harbour views. Friendly member of staff close by to help if required. Unexpected surprise visit.

This free museum has managed to combine the old and new with whitewashed walls and modern sculptures in the open spaces. The exhibits are well kept and all written up in English.

Worth a 10 minute visit, but not a great deal to see. Best bit is the close up view of some light-house lights

We passed en route to the town and both days we went in, it was closed. Nice little restaurant attached to it, but we didn't try it out. It did however look lovely

A truly iconic part of Cascais. So interesting and the museum is free. Well worth going to however the actual lighthouse is closed for a few months for renovation - A must see!

Its worth it! really. A small tour but yet worth because of the view. Excellent for pictures to the town panorama. try to arrange a tour with a Lighthouse guide. Its free and you get to know a lot about history of portugal.

The museum is not bad, there is not much to see but the lighthouse is amazing, you can sit there and relax in the silence while watching the sea.

This is the perfect place to spend a couple of hours . It is right across from the Conde Castro de Guimaraes museum and the Santa Marta Beach. (I learned to swim here.)
