the best bit for me is actually the building; cloisters and astounding chapel! Tiles also interesting enough!

If you want to visit a museum that represents something unique and Portuguese to the core, then you have to come here. I'm not some tile fan, but this was interesting and beautiful. The museum is set in an old monastery and you have a nice relaxing garden to have a drink after your visit. It's a bit out of... More

It was a bit harder to get to and we weren't sure how to get there with the bus but in the end it wasn't too hard to find. The place is nice with lots of different tiles from different areas. It is unusual and that is why we chose to go there. I am not sure I would go... More

Not all of our little party wanted to visit the tile museum but we are all glad we visited. We found joy in both the tiles themselves and in the building itself. The building was an old convent and very well preserved chapel was incredible. In a number of ways it reminded us of the Sao Roque church only smaller.... More

It is situated outside the city center and the location it is not conveniant. It is very intersting if you want to learn more about "azulejos". The church inside the museum is beautiful decorated. And the entire place is like oasis of silece, because not many visitators come here.

A wonderful collection of tiles through the centuries. This museum isn't top of the list for most travellers, but reconsider your plans!

I had never been to a museum dedicated to tile before. Their collection is splendid in its variety, aesthetics and historical value. There is a magnificent piece with tiles on the top floor that showcases the city of Lisbon before the earthquake in the 18th century which is not to be missed; it gives you an idea of what the...

We were looking for something to do one morning before departing Lisbon. Our concierge recommended this museum. We jumped in a cab and thought the driver must be lost, however he took us right to the door. What an amazing place, with a history of tile throughout the ages. When we found out the museum was a former convent and... More

Lost to see hear-allow at least two hours . Ask directions from Tourist Office as it a little off the beaten track but easy enough o access via bus (20 minutes from city centre) once you know where you are going.
