  • The previous reviewers explained this is a gem of a museum. While walking in the Saint Anthony parish area, we kept passing this museum. I have been to a few museums in Lisbon and I kept asking what h...  more »
  • Great museum to have a better understanding of Portuguese's modern history and fascism in general. Should be on everyone's list to visit based on the current situation in the world.  more »
  • Great surprise to see how the Portugueses honored their "recent" history. The exposition is very organized, showing Portugal's history from 1860 to 1976, especially during Salazar dictatorship. The mu...  more »

  • Incredibly interesting, well presented. Don't miss it.
  • Very informative museum! We stumbled upon this museum on accident. As we both knew that there was a dictatorshop in Portugal for a few decades, but that was about it, we decided to take a look. And we where stunned about the quality of the museum and what you could learn. Free entry for students too!
  • Amazing gem of a FREE museum tucked in the Alfama district. Exhibitions are well developed and clear with clear explanations into this time in Portugal's history. They need a better gift shop because I would have bought SO MUCH things.
  • A most important place to visit, lots of food for thought, one of the best places I visited on my stay.
  • Excellent free admission museum that describes 48 y of Portugese dicatorship, from 1926 to 1974, including clandestine opposition and suppression by corrupt politicians and secret police. Video clips has English subtiles. Everything is translated into English.

Where to stay in Lisbon

Check into one of Lisbon's grand city center hotels to position yourself well to explore the central historical districts on foot. To avoid the potentially high prices of some of the Old Town's central upscale hotels, try staying in a hostel instead. While some hostels have an upper age limit for their guests, they're affordable and oftentimes offer access to attractions on par with or better than bigger hotels. In the upper town, opt for one of the family-run bed and breakfasts, which provide affordable rooms and, as the name would suggest, include a meal as well.
