  • 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.
  • Free museum, great view from top floor cafe.
