A very nice museum about electricity. You still smell the air from 50 years ago, fabulous how they made it a museum. Walking through the old ovens.
Free entrance, worth a visit!

A bit far from the other museums in Belem, but it's worth a visit as it is for free and you can learn how an energy plant worked.
There is also a temporary modern art exhibition, which is free as well, and very nice to see.
You have only to pay 1 euro if you have a bag, to be kept in the lockers.

This FREE museum is great with interactive displays and lots of interesting information. It is in Belem on the river and well worth a visit. It has clean toilets and a good cloak room with cheap drinks and food in the vending machine.

I thought it would be a boring museum, but was a surprising one. The visit is free and there is a guide entering every hour. They are very captive and patient. There is a hystorical part and a interactive one...teaching the danger and the fun brought by eletricity. One of the best museuns in lisbon. Much better than some expensive palaces.
