The museum has both temporary and permanent exhibitions. And it feels like between those, the museum gave us everything there was to see

It started off with a exhibition about creation and evolution which involved dinosaurs and neanderthals. Then we saw the symbol of Leiria which is the pine tree; there were painting of the image of Jesus depicted by the Catholic Church..the most exciting has got to be the plastic exhibition though (I believe it was one of the temporary ones). We got to learn about how plastics was mostly used before vs now, which companies are the biggest producers in Portugal, we learnt about micro-plastic.. it was amazing! There was also a really cool exhibition that was a chess board that was made of incredibly unique pieces with one king being an owl, the other having a chess board in his hand, and every other piece was incredibly unique too.

The one thing I have to complain about is the gift shop though. It didn't have small sizes for all the shirts, none of the bookmarks that were on display were in stock, the fridge magnets had magnets that are too small to hold its weight...it was all a bit of a mess

Even with that, it was a great experience though. The exhibition were exciting and unique and the staff was very friendly as well. Perfect for a rainy day! And the tickets that you buy at the museum of Leiria can also be used to visit the Paper Mill which is right behind. Two for the price of one? Love it !

The main museum has been really well set out with some modern technology and features used to make it interactive. We also enjoyed the temporary display featuring the history of the plastics industry in Portugal

History of the city

Interesting museum, displaying the history of the city from the pre-history. It also has a large collection of religious art. The building itself is interesting and overall it its worth visiting!
