  • Two-part Museum. In the modern part of the water cycle, pathways and preparation are represented very vividly and IT based. In the old part are two floors like a small jewel of old received four steam engines of the pump station from 1912 - true works of art. For visitors who are interested in historical technology it is an absolute must HAVE as the E-Werk next to MAAT. There are combo cards Aqua Museum with Panteon! We were lucky and free entrance to the Aqua was Museum on Saturday...

  • Here there is much informative about the history of water in Lisbon. Well where it had own taps the fountain according to origin, skin color, gender and origin. Interesting exhibits and highlight the engine room. Former pride of the waterworks, polished to a high gloss. Impressive. Restored with love. Is worth a visit.

  • The water Museum in Lisbon and An unusual and interesting attraction. At the Museum you ide get to know about the history of water supply in Lisbon. On the tour we know the ways of drinking water in the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries. The stroll through the galleries is full of discoveries.

  • 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
