If in Lisbon this amazing museum set in a huge old bank is a must see! The building alone warrants a visit but fill it with some amazing design from cars to opera fashion and you have a truly unique and mind enriching experience. So how much to wander around this wonderful space absolutely nothing entry is free!

Conveniently located in the middle of the city, just next to the Arco da Rua Augusta, this is a great way to inhale a bit of culture for those who can’t manage art. The Museum of Design and Fashion (MUDE) is rather small so you can be in and out in like 45 minutes. Depending on the current exhibition, it... More

When we entered the museum we were pleasantly surprised to find it was free, as all the other musuems we had visited in Lisbon charged for entry. We were given a quick explanation of the layout of the museum by one of the staff and advised on where we could and could not take photographs. On the ground floor the... More

The former headquarters building of the Banco Nacional Ultramarino (built in the mid 20th century) been converted into a fascinating exhibition space. Many of the interior fittings have sadly been ripped out, but some survive and are integral to the museum. Banco Nacional Ultramarino was a key institution of the Portuguese colonial empire before the 1974 revolution. The building's own... More

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...
