  • 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.

  • The jewel the wonderfully artistic, ancient four steam engines in the former Barbadinhos are quite safe pumping station, which have pumped drinking water in the height once for Lisbon's fountain. They are true works of art of the art, the first steam engines built in Portugal. Although Lisbon is located directly on the water, it was a big challenge to provide enough drinking water since Roman times. Of visible Aqueduto witness the Águas Livres, but also the surviving large reservoir Mãe d' Água including even today (see there). In addition to the steam engines the background and the history of this complex and significant structures is represented here in this museum very detail and with many original exhibits and documents. For visitors who are interested in historical technique, it is a totally worthy goal!

  • We went for a few photos where tanks could be seen, it seems that it is divided into 4 around Lisbon. 5€ by person to see nothing important, had more things to see in my school of child.

  • 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
