  • Impressive old machinery. Exhibit is small and mostly text based - all around water and water for 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.
