  • After we paid, we were told that a part of the Museum is closed - due to repair works. So began the tour at the Lisbon model as it was before the earthquake. There were two monitors: one was broken and one crashed. The Lady had only are urged to find out how to restart the computer. Service mentality? Error display. The rest of the Museum was an arrangement of printing, furniture and other objects. The labels all in Portuguese. I had to look at Wikipedia to understand it. Very disappointing and unfortunately a waste of time.

  • Next to the stadium of the sporting of Lisbon and the University City, in Campo Grande, is this fifth summer of early EIGHTEENTH converted into the amazing Museum of Lisbon. Dependencies of this stately Palace (Palace pepper) are home to a small Museum of the history of the city, specially focused in the time before and after the earthquake of 1755: paintings, engravings, models of the city,... Also the own dependencies are a wonder, especially the kitchen and the sockets of tiles of the 18TH. On one side of the Palace the curious garden of Raphael Bordallo Pinheiro meets figures in ceramic animals. The Museum has also temporary exhibitions beside a garden full of peacocks. On this occasion it was a sample of Portuguese ceramic tile museum. All this wonder for just 3 euros. As it is a little away from the tourist routes, virtually empty. Wonderful to spend the morning! Closed from 13 to 14.

  • Somehow, city museums are always the stepchildren of the urban landscape of the Museum. This is also how the Lisbon City Museum. And completely wrong. Yes, it is a bit off, in the University District, and on the way to the airport, but is easily accessible by underground (station Campo Grande). The knowledge of the city reveals itself (unfortunately only Portuguese labeled; Meanwhile, BB´s are English-language videos) in a historical Palace (Palácio Pimenta) gehördendem together with this generous garden, which itself is home to two more exhibition facilities (for modern art or exhibitions). Who really wants to understand Lisbon, must wander through these spaces. There opens a plastic city panorama views of the seven hills of the city, there one reads the earthquake also German reports on the biggest disaster that has ever afflicted the city in 1755, there more, contributing to the understanding is a stately cooking facility and much more. Particularly worth seeing, if you has you walk through the garden with the peacocks: A smaller garden, equipped with sculptures of large Bordallo Pinheiro, whose Museum is to be found within stone's throw distance on the other side of the wide road the offer completes.

  • It's a beautiful museum. I'd definitely recommend going there. Unfortunately there are no English translations added to the descriptions of the paintings. Hopefully they will add them in the future. I'd like to know the story behind the art.
  • A little museum with a very nice garden invaded by some big porcelain bugs. Free on the first Sunday of the month.
  • Awesome museum. A must see if you are curious about Lisbon history, culture and origins. One of the museum highlights are the 10 meters miniature of the city.
  • Is the best place ever
  • Great museum with lots of artifacts and paintings going through the history of Lisboa from ancient times to modern days. Recommend. Only downside for English speaking visitors is that everything is only in Portuguese. But you'll understand most of it anyway.
