  • For those prepared to reserve a day to 4 main components of the water Museum, will have a field day. If you find a lot for a single day, divide the visitors by 2 or 3 days. Don't let is walking in the Águas Livres Aqueduct; to impress with his mother; take the underground channel of the Patriarchal; wonder at the lift station Barbadinhos.

  • It's not much, but it is curious to see the large steam pumps to raise water to the top district and then distribute them. It has a small very didactic exhibition about the importance of water in the world and its distribution. At the same time explain the modernization of the network for sanitation and distribution of water in Lisbon.

  • The Museum of the water allows for a journey through the past looking to the future in a very well designed. Part of a larger Museum space, instantly creates desire to know the other sites connected to the water supply in Lisbon.

  • Place isn't large, but machinery is quite fascinating - and that faint smell of machine oil and iron, that's really something. If you know basic facts about Lisbon water supply (aqueduct, reservoir etc.) you could skip the intro video, there's nothing new there (but if not, go for it, then visit other parts of the system)
  • Great place to visit, a small but very interesting old pumping station, (part of it still working), the steam machinery the metalwork and the architecture are of the greatest quality and detail that is impossible to find nowadays.
  • Fascinating. Industrial cathedral. Some of the machines have so much ornamentation and neogothic elements, one would think they belong in a church.
  • Museu onde nos podemos sensibilizar sobre a água e a falta que ela nos faz e, também, como o ser o humano a desperdiça e não deve fazer. A 10 min a pé de Sta Apolónia, fácil acesso
  • Visita muito rica
