In an era when news and journalism are under threat, this is a fascinating and important museum. In a modern space it presents an historical account of bringing news, hopefully always impartial, to the citizens of countries. In the windows it shows notable news makers...More

This is, probably, one of the best small museums you will ever visit. It is highly interactive, fun and very very interesting. Great for kids as well. Definitely worth a visit!

This was an interesting surprise in Palace country; you will find it by seeing famous people on their windows. If you are on a time constraint, I would stick to the palaces.

While the roads around were full of tourists there were not too many people in the museum. Our 7 years old boy was fascinated and so were we parents. 1 hour is not enough, rather expect to spend more time.

Very interesting museum. A good overlooking panorama on the development of the media during the last decades, not forgetting a vision of the future. Although with a central location in Sintra town (which is convenient for visitors) the size of the building is not big...More
