This is a good museum to look around for 20 - 30 minutes, which as it's free is great. There are some interesting exhibits here around design during the last 150 years or so. Don't expect to be occupied here all afternoon but it's a great detour from looking around the central area of Lisbon.

Firstly, how grateful are we for free museums? And GOOD free museums at that! And that is precisely what MUDE is. Having worn glasses since I was 12, I always viewed my spectacles as a piece of art. (And good gravy, have you purchase a pair lately? They COST as much!) I was pleased as punch to see the frameware... More

As well all know, costs quickly add up when travelling and when I was researching museums in Lisbon I wanted to come to this one. As I'm a designer and photographer I'm always interested in finding interesting design and photo museums (design, not art - as art museums are everywhere in Europe). Even better was that this museum is located... More

What struck us first was the building interior - a former bank building with a partially demolished interior, so there are beautiful stone banking counters and floors from the 1960s and a bank vault space, combined with raw concrete and terra cotta tile walls. My daughter really enjoyed the top floor, which had an exhibit of fashion design in a... More

This was a great experience - the ground floor walked through decades of changes in design providing informative and insightful histories highlighted by key pieces from the period. The upper floors had exhibitions of local manufacturing, Japanese clothing design, sculpture and in the attic a gorgeous display of gowns and dresses from great stage shows and ballets. Wonderful place to... More

We came across MUDE having accidentally overshot our tram, and were pleasantly surprised to find that entrance to the museum was free! The kind worker at the front desk provided a simple overview of the building having previously functioned as a bank, underwent partial demolition before eventually being bought by the state, and slowly converted into a museum of design...

This tiny, free museum displays icons of both fashion and industrial design, decade by decade. Any one older than thirty will immediately recognize objects and fashions they grew up with. The older you are, the more fun you'll have! Bonus: the Amorino gelato store is right down the street.

This fun little fashion and design museum is a great respite from all the other tourist attracts near by. It's well curated and has really fantastic exhibitions. And it's free! Or at least it was when I went. Either way, if you're into fashion or designer or just want to see some beautiful clothing, head here!

The building is as interesting as the exhibits (I felt like on a spy movie, going into the vault room...) and it is well worth a visit! Apparently the temporary exhibits change often, so I'll sure visit it every time I go to Lisboa. The permanent exhibit is a great way to get a fast overview of design evolution. PLUS:... More

The museum is located in a former bank building. Downstairs sunglasses are on display in a most clever way. How? That's for you to find out but worth the try. Ground floor has permanent exposition of some design item that are presented by decades. Gives you a quick overview. Nice but not as good as their temporary exhibitions. These are... More
