Good variety of designs from objects to furniture to clothing, so has something for everyone. You can see everything in a short space of time which is nice and everything is layed out in an accessible manner.

Second trip, great to just wander in off main street and be able to get a culture and to see the lovely pieces of design given space and light.

The ground floor is organised as a timeline from the 1940's to the naughties, a half dozen items to illustrate each decade. My favourite exhibit is the bubble car, but there's also some stylish ceramics and clothing. The other two floors were less interesting, except for an amusing supersized cafe table with supersized cakes. This place is free and is... More

Interesting museum. It can be very good, depending on the temporary exhibitions. Have had better experiences than this time, but the quarter it is in, is magnificent

The first floor indeed gives an excellent and easily accessible overview of design over 100 years, well written commentary and links to history. Very much worth visiting. The two floors on Portuguese design tell a honest story that the Portuguese design has been non-existent. The suffocating effect of any dictatorship or nationalism on creativity and on being different? The first... More

Spread over 3 floors the most interesting one is the 1st flow with some nice original pieces, some very important post modern furniture along with iconic bits fron the 60s through to 2000 ish. The museum is in a fabulous old deco building and the galleries are very stripped back with an industrial feel. Well worth and hour or so... More

If you have limited time, restrict yourself to the permanent ground-floor exhibition. The Portuguese design exhibit upstairs was not very interesting, mainly a series of frames press cuttings rather than objects. However, do visit the ladies' toilets (obviously unless you are a man!) to see the interesting display. Also be prepared to leave your bag in the cloakroom (no charge).

The first floor with the designer dresses and brief history of Portuguese design was very nice . I could not understand what the second floor was about . Overall , it takes only 15 minutes to finish the first floor and it is a nice place , plus the entrance is free

One of the floors is just a joke, the other one, where you can't take pics, has some nice design classics

Staying in Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores

Neighborhood Profile
Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores
A pending candidate to become a World Heritage Site, Lisbon's downtown (the "Baixa Pombalina", or simply "Baixa") is a perfect example of anti-earthquake construction, having been rebuilt following the 1755 earthquake by the famous Marquês de Pombal (hence its name). Its offer is vast: restaurants and cafes in Rossio and Restauradores, outlets and shops in the Áurea, Augusta, Prata and other famous streets, the imponent Praça do Comércio and its Arch, the luxury shops along the Avenida da Liberdade, this is the beating heart of the city center. The Baixa also grants easy access to trains leading to Sintra, the trams that go around the Castle hill, old neighborhoods or even take you to Belém, and Lisbon's traditional restaurants and cafes. Considering a visit to the Fashion and Design Museum (free entrance) and don't forget to try the famous liquor, "ginjinha"!
