This was a fabulous museum. Amazing collection, well organized and described in both Portuguese and English. A nice addition to Lisbon! I assume it's low placement in the rankings is due to the lowest number of reviews and perhaps its location makes it less frequented.....although the train and streetcars stop right be the museum. Much more interesting than some of... More

Make sure to have a look at the shop if the place leaves you as impressed as we were. My partner absolutely loved it. Great idea for kids to play around with shadows. You get entertained just by searching them mess around.

We took the mr 15 tram from Praco do Comercio. We more or less guessed where to get off and were lucky. We didn't find any signs to the Museum, but we're helped by a passerby. The museum itself was elegantly designed, and there were many interesting artifacts. As amateurs we would have appreciated more of a story, linking the... More

Based on TA reviews we regrouped for lunch at this museum which is conveniently located not far from a metro stop in the area of town that we wanted to explore. I was very disappointed in the offering of a buffet that resembled that of a 1970's hotel dining room. Although edible, the food was very simple and quite tasteless.... More

Very good museum with plenty of interesting artifacts. Seniors get a discount. You will find the museum on the same coast road as the Belem Tower.

This is such a great museum. Great design. Great exhibitions. We went there in July and it was almost empty. Just a bus or taxi ride from the center. Highly recommended. Gives you some great insights about the history of the region.

A wonderful display of art with portuguese and asian influences, it tells some of the history of portuguese colonization and the mutual influences on art of the many civilizations involved. Nice temporary expositions. A must go.

This museum both dazzles and disappoints. First, it is a bit pricey at €12 per person in view of what you get. The special exhibitions were very disappointing but the permanent collection has some very lovely and interesting things. The museum space is well set out and atmospheric, but it fails to tell the story of Portugal's relationship with the... More

A brilliant new exhibition showing Deviprasad´s work inspired by his Lisbon travels. Even if you stayed in Lisbon for only a day or two you will immediately recognise how well his paintings, photos and installation capture the soul and spirit of the city, it´s architecture and the ways the city leads you through it´s history. The works offer an exciting... More
