Exceptional building - and a must see Couture by Christian Lacroix in the impressive bank vault

The museum is next to the monumental gate on Rua Augusta and it is located in a former head-office for a main Portuguese bank. The bank was about to be demolished, and major... read more

The museum is next to the monumental gate on Rua Augusta and it is located in a former head-office for a main Portuguese bank. The bank was about to be demolished, and major parts of the interiors was removed before one changed focus and decided to convert it to a museum. It is quite strange to walk through the different...

You must not like the the design and even so it is a very informativ, and interesting museum. It is free. You have different exhibits from textile, to furniture - the history of their design. In the cellar there is a real bank safe, as the building itself was earlier a bank. It is very interesting to see a big... More

A free of charge entrance, a very convenient system of the exhibition which contains unusual and extremely beautiful pieces of art (clothes, furniture etc.). The museum can be liked by both amateurs and professionals. The only one minus (but maybe it's a benefit): u can't take any pictures. I suppose this significance allows you to get more pleasure from the... More

It is like you have the most inspiring teacher that leads you through the history of design when visit MUDE. The expo of Lacroix ( Eddy..it is Lacroix darling ) in the cellar of this former bank was so impressiv.

forget the clothes downstairs, christian lacroix I think... it was the safe in the basement that was the star!!! This was just like you see in a film where someone tries to break in and rob a bank!! There are hundreds of shiny little drawers which are individual safety deposit boxes and huge wheels which unlock the main door of... More

Fascinating collection of designs of all sorts of products. Located just inside the huge arch on the main walking street. Really enjoyed their selection.

Great find. Free museum in a cool space that includes so many elements of great design. From furniture, to cars, household items, clothing and jewelry from the late 19th through the 20th century. It was a fun respite from the street and not crowded at all. They have a great catalog for 5Euro too that we enjoyed reading on the... More

An interesting take on modern design in an amazing old bank building which has been stripped. Loved the old strong boxes. No cafe unfortunately !

The museum is in an o;d bank. The walls and ceilings are stripped bare. It showcases furniture, small household items and fashion in time groups which is brilliant. The LaCroix exhibition in the old vaults are better than the McQueen one at the V&A in London. much smaller but much more impactful.

Its free, but you cannot take pictures everywhere, friendly people, a lot of seventies stuff, at the top floor there was an exhibition off clothes used in opera, musicals and movies, not my cup of tea ......
