It's been like visiting 3 different museums: falconry across the ages on ground floor, Portuguese-Asian times on 1st floor and wonderful, even funny, Asian shadow theater puppets on the 2nd, variety which might avoid kids getting bored, not a very big place to visit neither. First floor has been by far the most striking to me, the scenery is incredibly... More

The museum showcases Different pieces from around Asia from the ex Portuguese colonies and trips (Malacca, Macau, Japan, India, Thailand China etc) and is divided by the different... More

My title says it all: it is a small collection (in a huge building) but everything is perfectly presented

Falconry past and present - exceptionally interesting. Includes textile and other artifacts that are not purely about hunting for food and pleasure. Also display by artist Ng from Macau digital images and video, wonderful images Other floors in the museum highlight how the Portuguese trading empire was established. Lots of information in Portuguese and translated into English. Some area devoted... More

This large building has only two floors of spaced out and indifferent exhibits for the public to see. It is gloomy and dark as the lighting is kept very low in the exhibits areas and this left me feeling vulnerable and unsafe. The restaurant was closed and the tiny café in the basement had a very limited range of cakes... More

This museum is a bit far from the rest of the touristic attractions, halfway between Praça do Comércio and Belém. It is an interesting museum about the Far East, with a special focus on those countries where the Portuguese had colonies or commercial interests (Goa in India, Macau in China, Japan...). The exhibition includes armors, puppets, books, all kinds of... More

A pleasant surprise set a bit outside the centre in the docklands area. Not far from the San Francisco-esque bridge and easily accessible by the number 15 tram, this modern museum tracks the history of the links between Portugal and the Far East. Nicely annotated in English as well as Portuguese it really was a great way to spend a... More
